Governor of the State of Osun, Adegboyega Oyetola, has sent heartfelt condolences to the government and the people of Lagos State over the death of the first civilian governor of the State, Chief Lateef Jakande.

Oyetola in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Ismail Omipidan, also commiserated with the entire Jakande family, friends and all those who mourn the late elder stateman and administrator.

He said Jakande was a professional and respected journalist, progressive politician, distinguished public servant and an outstanding leader, who demonstrated strong concern and commitment to the welfare of the people he served.

Oyetola noted that when he served as governor of Lagos between 1979 and 1983, Jakande brought significant development to the State and left remarkable legacies that made him
a reference point for politicians, not only in Lagos but across the country.

He said: “On behalf of the Government and good people of the State of Osun, I extend my heartfelt condolences to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, government and people of Lagos State over the death of the first civilian governor of the State, Alhaji Lateef Jakande.

“I also commiserate with the family of Baba Jakande, his friends, associates and all those who mourn the demise of the elder statesman and administrator of note.

“When he served as governor of Lagos State between 1979 and 1983, Baba Jakande brought significant development to the State and left remarkable legacies that made him
a reference point for politicians, not only in Lagos but across the country.

“With his focus and people-centric leadership, Baba earned the trust and respect of the people of Lagos and Nigerians from diverse political, social and religious leanings. He will be long remembered for his legacies and impacts.

“I pray that Almighty Allah will forgive his shortcomings, grant him a place in Aljanah Firdaus and grant his family and loved ones the strength to bear his demise.”
