All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State has lost another party leader, Revd Timothy Oyasodun, barely one week after the demise of the former Chairman of Agege local government, Chief Enoch Ajiboso.
Oyasodun’s death has attracted the attention of many party leaders in Bariga Local Council Development Area and Lagos East Senatorial District at large with tributes pouring in for him in torrents.
The Senator representing Lagos East Senatorial District, Sen. Tokunbo Abiru, in his condolence message, said the death of Oyasodun was a rude shock to him and a great loss to the APC in the district.
Abiru said the deceased was an asset to the APC considering the role the late reverend played in the last bye-election.
” This morning, I woke up to learn about the sad and sudden passage of Revd Timothy Oyasodun popularly known as Iyo, Chairman, All Progressives Congress (APC), Bariga Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Lagos State.
” This sad news was a rude shock, not just to me, but also to all progressives in Lagos East considering the role the late reverend played in the just concluded senatorial bye-election and series of discussion we held on how to move Lagos East APC forward after the bye-election.
” Revd Oyasodun’s death, no doubt, is a great loss to the entire progressive family in Lagos State, especially in Bariga LCDA and Somolu Local Government Area (LGA). But we all submit to the decision of God our Creator to call him home at the early hour of December 26, 2020.
” On behalf of Lagos East APC, therefore, I condole with the entire family of late Oyadosun, Chairman of Bariga LCDA, Hon. Kolade Alabi; Chairman of Lagos APC, Prince Babatunde Balogun, all members State Executive Committee (SEC) and State Working Committee (SWC)”, said Abiru in his condolence message.
The Senator further said the deceased devoted his life to serving God, humanity and Lagos APC at large.
Before he emerged Chairman of Bariga APC, the late Oyasodun had served as Secretary-General of SDP in Somolu and Kosofe LGAs.
He had also served as Secretary General of UNCP in Somolu LGA; Secretary General of Apex Leaders, Somolu/Bariga Alliance for Democracy and Secretary-General of Apex Leaders, Somolu/Bariga APC.
