He said that Braithwaite was always on the side of the poor and the majority, irrespective of challenges and trepidations.

"This was what Dr Braithwaite believed in, he confessed, he preached and he fought for throughout his lifetime.

"In politics, his message was consistent, constant and always a thoroughbred," he said.

Responding on behalf of the family, the daughter of the deceased, Dr Omowunmi Braithwaite, thanked the state governor for the visit.

She described her father as a man of values who was forthright and fearless.
