Governor Oyebanji who described Otunba Egbeyemi as a man of Honour, a great leader of his people and a father figure to many, said the late Deputy Governor would be sorely missed for his frankness, deep insight and wise counsel.

“Baba ran a good race, served our dear state with his time, talent and resources and etched his name in gold as a man of honour, excellent team player and a seasoned administrator. We shall miss his amiable personality and wise counsel.

“On behalf of my wife, the Government and good people of Ekiti State, I commiserate with the children and immediate family members of our dear leader and former deputy Governor, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi.

“While we thank God for the life of impact he lived, we know that he shall be sorely missed. Our prayer is that God Almighty will grant him eternal rest and comfort the family,” the statement added.
