Fayose Visits Late Ex-Governor Adebayo Adeyinka's Residence

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose on Saturday paid a condolence visit to the Ikeja residence of the  former military governor of the defunct Western Region, Late Major-General Robert Adeyinka Adebayo in Lagos.

A statement by his aide, Lere Olayinka said he was accompanied by his Chief of Staff, Barr. Dipo Anisulowo who is also an in-law of the Adebayo's.

The duo was welcomed to the residence by a son of the former military governor and first democratically elected governor of Ekiti State, Otunba Adeniyi Adebayo.

In his remarks, Governor Fayose said leader's demise will be greatly missed for what he represents.

"We are only to take cue and lessons from his life and we pray that the legacies he left behind will be sustained. This is not a departure for sorrow but a departure we'll all miss. We are here to condole with ourselves, Baba lived a very good life.

"I was cracking joke with Otunba Adebayo, I said this(Baba's burial) is not an APC affair, it is our affair, if you take it to APC, I will pull it back and take it to PDP. Baba represented all of us. I have written letters to my colleague governors, I don't think this is the business of the family, to the best of my understanding, I believe it is a state burial, it is a state burial.

"I think this is an issue for the south west governors and other constituencies Baba represents, as soon as the committees are formed, we'll be well represented, I will communicate with my colleagues, we'll do that promptly and in line with workings of the family to make a success of the burial".

Fayose also assured the Adebayo Family that the people of Ekiti share the same moment with them, adding that they should inform him of the late governor's burial plans.

Major-General Robert Adeyinka Adebayo who was the second governor of the defunct Western Region and the leader of Yoruba Council of Elders(YCE) died on the 7th of March 2017 at a ripe age of 89.
