The member representing Kabba-Bunu/Ijumu Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Hon. Salman Idris has expressed shock over the demise of a front-line political leader in Ijumu local government area, Chief Olorunshola Adedoyin who was involved in an auto accident on Monday resulting in his untimely death.
Chief Adedoyin, a former Liaison Office II for Ijumu Local government area, was until his death a prominent stakeholder in our polity and a seasoned community development advocate who was well known for his developmental strides in his Ekinrin-Adde community and Ijumu.
In a statement he personally signed, the federal lawmaker described Chief Shola Adedoyin as a astute politician and a patriot who was well known for his advocacy for equity, fairness and justice and in his political dealings.
“Indeed, Ijumu Local Government area has lost a great patriot in Chief Adedoyin. His death has created a huge vacuum so difficult to fill,” the statement partly read.
Hon. Salman prayed that God will grant his immediate family, his Ekinrin-Adde community and Indeed the people of Ijumu and Kogi state at large the fortitude to bear this huge and irreparable loss and grant his soul eternal rest.
