The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has commiserated with the family of the late former Governor of Oyo State, Chief Lamidi Adesina.
In a statement, National Publicity Secretary of the Party, Chief Olisa Metuh, described the passage as the unfortunate depletion of the ranks of seasoned politicians in the country.
He stated that although the late Chief Adesina was not a member of the PDP the party appreciated his role in the sustenance of democracy in the country and will miss his experience and words of wisdom.
Chief Metuh maintained that the late Alhaji Adesina who he described as a renowned educationist and political leader while alive devoted his energies to the service of fatherland.
The PDP spokesman said the former Governor will be remembered for his forthrightness and candor and urged his family, friends and associates to take solace in the fact that his existence was characterized by positive contribution to the advancement of Nigeria.

The attention of the South East Zone of the People's Democratic Party has been drawn to spurious publications in a section of the media alleging unfounded claims of bias against the Hon Minister of Aviation, Princess Stella Oduah in the recruitment exercise carried out by some parastatals in her ministry.
The leadership of our great Party in the southeast makes bold to state categorically that this baseless allegation is yet another futile attempt by opposition elements to smear the image of the Minister and denigrate her well earned reputation as a distinguished Nigerian and a worthy assets of our great Party, the PDP.
Princess Oduah, though a proud daughter of the Southeast zone, has proven herself to be a detribalized Nigerian both in her private business and in the discharge of her duties as Minister. The current massive upgrading of airports in all the geopolitical zones in the country bear testimony to this.
We are proud to observe that Princess Oduah's performance in office is a major plank of President Jonathan's transformation agenda.
These sponsored provocative publications are designed by opposition elements who are envious of her sterling performance and who feel threatened by her rising profile as a dedicated minister and exemplary member of our great Party.
For the records, Princess Oduah is not involved directly or indirectly in staff recruitment of any parastatal under her. There is a well established bureaucracy to handle such matters while she concerns herself with the huge task of driving the well applauded reforms in the aviation sector.Read more...
