Senate Leader, Michael Bamidele Opeyemi has mourned the death of Ekiti State Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Barrister Paul Omotoso.

He described his death as devastating and shocking not only to his family, and the APC fold but to the entire Ekiti State.

In a statement which was made available to Pmnews.ng in Abuja on Wednesday by his Directorate of Media and Public Affairs, the leader of the upper legislative Chamber sent his heartfelt condolences to Omotoso’s family and urged that the people of Ekiti State take solace in the fact that he lived for the good of mankind.

The statement said, ”Omotoso’s death, which occurred early hours of Wednesday, was personally shocking to him and devastating to the entire progressive family, not only in Ekiti, but also in Nigeria at large.

He said the 61-year-old politician’s contributions to the development of Ekiti especially at the grassroots politics are of immense measure, adding that he played his politics with decorum, good conscience and purposeful leadership.

“With great concern, I join Ekiti sons and daughters to mourn the sudden passing of our state party chairman, Barr. Paul Omotoso who I always describe as a man with great political maturity and purposeful leadership.

“His previous tenures as a former State Commissioner, former State Secretary of our great political party and State Chairmanship which he held until his death were testimonies of his clear direction as a leader and his servant-leader dispositions.

“The remarkable contributions he made and gaps left behind by the Imesi Ekiti-born politician can not be forgotten and dumped in the dustbin of history.

“His contributions to the formation of the APC and his ability to steer the affairs of the state chapter at most difficult instances are part of the memories that we shall live with for a long time.”
