Pa Fasanmi was a progressive, who loved Nigeria – Oyetola
There is need for politicians to emulate the principle and ideology of the late political icon, Senator Ayo Fasanmi for the nation to witness a new political order.
This was the submission of Osun State governor, Mr Gboyega Oyetola at a commendation service held in honour of the leader of Afenifere Group in Osogbo, the Osun State capital.
Governor Oyetola described late Fasanmi as a national hero whose contribution to the nation’s development cannot be looked down upon.
The governor said Pa Fasanmi was a true progressive who always protects and projects the noble and progressive ideals of Chief Obafemi Awolowo.
In a sermon, the Dean of All Saints Anglican Church in Osogbo, Venerable Olugbenro Fabuluje advised politicians to be selfless and patriotic as late political icon.
In a remark, the eldest son of the deceased, Mr Obafemi Fasanmi described his father as honest and humble person who had the interest of Nigeria at heart, saying the family takes solace in the fact that he lived a fulfilled life.
The commendation service was attended by former governor of Osun State, Chief Adebisi Akande, top government functionaries and traditional rulers among others.
