While paying tribute to the late former governor in a statement he personally signed on Wednesday, Adegoke described late Alao-Akala’s influence and contributions to Oyo State and Nigeria’s democracy as indelible.
Alao-Akala lived for the welfare and security of the common man. His steadfastness, commitment to the cause of one Nigeria and optimistic spirit towards national development will continue to inspire us both now and in future.
“Late Alao-Akala was a political enigma, whose vibrancy and dynamism had earned him many laurels in the political circuit.
“He would be sorely missed in view of his giant political strides and contributions to the building of this nascent political dispensation.
“Otunba Alao-Akala was a special breed, who contributed immensely to the development of Ogbomoso, Oyo State and country as whole. He was such a great patriot, who had contributed his own quota to the development of Oyo State”.
