In a statement issued on Wednesday by the State’s Publicity Secretary, Taofik Gani, the party disclosed that Adegbola died of covid 19 related ailments.

“He had held many political positions, notable amongst being State SDP officer; State Chairman of PAC; National Chairman of APN (Founded by late Jakande); State Chairman of Lagos PDP.
“He had also contested lagos State governorship under the platform of APGA.
“Adegbola was the Jakande group candidate for the Lagos West zsenatorial primary of the SDP, a contest between him and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu,” the statement said.
Gani described his death “as Matyrdom as he was dogged about the emancipation of the oppressed, pauperized and less privileged.
“He stood for the development of lagos and he sure regrets that this lagos is not as he wished.
“He will be forever remembered in Lagos Politics. We condole with his family. All PDP flags In the state shall fly at halfmast.
“All PDP meetings at this time are to be prayers for him. Burial arrangements shall be as presented by the family.”
