Senator's death is a great lesson to all politicians - Omisore

The PDP Senator made this known as he joins Nigerians and Osun residents in mourning the passing away of the first civilian governor of Osun State.

Late Senator Isiaka Adeleke

He wrote, "Senator Adeleke's death is a great lesson to all of us politicians on the need for us to commit ourselves to true service of our fatherland as Senate Adeleke clearly demonstrated while alive."

Continuing, Omisore wrote, "The news of the death of the first civilian governor of Osun state, Otunba Isiaka Adetunji Adeleke this morning came to me as a rude shock and infact difficult to believe.

"Otunba Adeleke, no doubt was a great politician, a great leader and grassroot politician who remained committed to the growth and commitment of Osun state and Nigeria in general.

"We had exemplary relationship in the 6th Senate. Allah knoweth best.

"I shall miss him greatly Despite our different political party, I respect his sagacity, humility and urbaness.

"His death will be a great loss to Osun state, Nigeria and indeed create a vacuum that will be difficult to fill in the political circle as well as in his constituency.

"May his soul rest in perfect peace and may God give his family the strength to bear the loss! Adieu a great Distinguished personality! "

Senator Adeleke passed away on Sunday, April 23, and was buried on Monday, 24, in accordance with Islamic rites.
