A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Oyo State, Chief Muili Ojuolape, is dead.
Chief Ojuolape, fondly called Baba Ojuolape, a chieftain of the APC in Oluyole Local Government Area of Oyo State, died on Tuesday, after a brief illness.
The member of the House of Representatives, representing Oluyole federal constituency, Tolulope Akande-Sadipe, confirmed Ojuolape’s death in Ibadan.
Conveying her condol need through her media aide, Olamilekan Olusada, on Thursday, Hon Akande-Sadipe expressed shock over the death of the party chieftain, saying, “The unthinkable happened. We received the news of a second loss in Oluyole APC. We are saddened by the exit of another committed progressive. It’s difficult to bear the pain!
“Baba Ojuolape, as I fondly called you, Baba Muili Ojuolape, you were indeed a father to me in Oluyole. As you go to your maker, I pray you rest in perfect peace. I will surely miss you, APC Oluyole will surely miss you, APC ward one shall surely miss you too. TASK Oluyole shall surely miss you. My sincere condolences to your immediate family. May the Almighty uphold your family to bear this loss.”
She added, “It is natural to grief when death strikes in a well knitted family, but we have the confidence that the sacrifices you made in your lifetime to build the APC in your local chapter, Oluyole, into a viable democratic institution, shall not be in vain.
“You have played your part and left, and your democratic credentials should always spur us to greater service.”
Akande-Sadipe therefore prayed God to comfort Ojuolape’s family and grant them the fortitude to bear the loss.
