Ondo State APC Mourns Omojuwa, Condoles With Family, Associates
The Ondo State Chapter of All Progressive Congress (APC) has expressed sadness over the death of a chieftain of the party, Chief Adewale Omojuwa.
The party says it received the demise of Chief Omojuwa with shock, adding that the deceased was known to be a peace lover.
A statement from Alex Kalejaye, Ondo State Publicity Secretary, APC, “The sad news of the death of Chief Adewale Omojuwa is shattering and destabilising. He was arguably one of the key pillars of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State.
“The state chapter is deeply pained by the untimely passage of the political strategist, and shrewd administrator.
“As Chairman of the Ondo State Oil Producing Area Development Commission (OSOPADEC), Pastor, as he was fondly called, worked assiduously for the transformation of the Niger Delta part of the state. It was during his tenure that several projects were initiated, and completed, in both the federal constituency and neighbouring local governments.
“Chief Omojuwa’s vigorous campaign as the then ACN candidate for Ilaje/Ese federal constituency helped, in no small measure, to popularise the party in the once stronghold of the PDP.
“His demise is therefore a huge loss to the entire APC family and political gladiators, both in Ondo State and the entire South West. The party will definitely miss his contributions during the next governorship election.
Chief Omojuwa was a committed party man; a grassroots politician and a great mobiliser. A vacuum has been created that would be difficult to fill.
“On behalf of Ondo APC, I condole with his immediate family, the people of Ugbo Kingdom, and his political associates across the zone. May God grant them all the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss. I also pray that God have mercy on the soul of the departed.”
