The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has described the death of Abayomi Ayeola, a member of the House of Representatives, as sad and shocking.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Aiyeola (APC-Ibeju Lekki Federal Constituency) died on Sunday at a private hospital in Lagos, after a brief illness.
The two-term lawmaker had clinched the APC ticket at the party’s last primary to seek a third term in the federal lower chamber come 2019.
Confirming the lawmaker’s demise to NAN, Assistant Publicity Secretary of the party in the state, Mr Abiodun Salami, said the party was pained at the passage of Aiyeola.
He described the deceased as a committed and loyal party man who did his best to impact on his constituency.
“This is a great loss.
“The confidence in him by people of his constituency earned him a ticket to represent them again in 2019 and that he was leader of the Lagos caucus showed the trust the party and colleagues had in him.
“We will surely miss the departure of this perfect gentleman and a legislator par excellence,” he said.
He prayed for the peaceful repose of his soul while asking God to grant those he left behind the fortitude to bear the loss (NAN)
