President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the Government of the State of Osun and members of the National Assembly on the passing away of Sen. Isiaka Adeleke on Sunday.
According to a statement signed by the Special Adviser to the President
(Media & Publicity), Femi Adesina, “President Buhari sends his condolences to the family and friends of the gentle and kind-hearted former Governor of Osun State who had passionately and relentlessly championed the cause of the less privileged and most vulnerable in Nigeria.
” The President believes the sudden loss of the legislator will create a gap in the hallowed red chamber as Adeleke had always epitomized unbridled patriotism, maturity and experience, especially with his recent interest in the protection of whistle blowers.
“President Buhari affirms that Adeleke’s contribution to his state, as first elected governor, and the country will always be remembered by posterity.
He prays that the Almighty God will grant the soul of the departed eternal rest, and comfort the family.
Senator Isiaka Adeleke died at Biket Hospital in Osogbo on Sunday after being admitted there on Saturday night.
