“He was a statesman of note, as he served as a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and governor of Oyo State for two consecutive terms, hence he became the Koseleri governor.”
“As the governor, he embarked on infrastructural development across the state. He was an amiable and humorous personality. He impacted positively on many lives, especially his political associates.”
The Speaker further stated former Governor passed away at a time when his wealth of experience was greatly needed by his political party and the nation.
