OGD Leads High-powered Delegates To Commiserate With Pa Fasoranti

Ex - Governor Says the Nation is In Difficult Times.

Former Governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, on Sunday, led an entourage to commiserate with the Afenifere leader, Pa Fasoranti whose daughter, Mrs. Funke Olakunrin was shot dead along Ore/Sagamu road on Friday.

Condoling with the family, Otunba Daniel said he was personally grieved by the development which has further exposed us as a nation where life is gradually becoming very cheap. 

"It is also pathetic that such occurrence was coming at a time when the nonagenarian statesman was providing the much needed leadership for the Yoruba race". 

Pa Fasoranti, he said, has spent all his life fighting for the cause of the people and one of the very few remaining leaders in the nation's polity who is so passionate about our national existence.

In his words, he said the nation is, no doubt, in difficult times and the omen is not looking good for the Yoruba race as it has not been able to unite as a people and speak with one voice unlike other races which look  more organised and advanced in strategy. The challenges facing the Southwest, he lamented, are humongous.

"We need to revisit the issue of security in the land. The fact that nobody has neither been apprehended nor punished since the killings started leaves much to be desired and sending negative signals that all is not well with us as a nation". 

He then urged Pa Fasoranti to be strong and continue with his statesmanship in his efforts at bringing
 the Yoruba race back into one fold so that we can achieve our collective goal as a one united entity. He also prayed to God in His infinite Mercies to stand by the family in this trying times and grant the deceased eternal rest. 

In delegates were Abagun Kole Omololu; National Organising Secretary of Afenifere, Mrs. Dupe Adelaja; former Minister of State for Defence, Balogun Wole Akala, Barrisster Niyi Owolade, former Attorney General of Odin State; Pastor Segun Sanni and Mr. Sola Olumofe, Prince Biodun Adesida among others.
