President Buhari Mourns Adebayo Adeyinka


President Muhammadu Buhari Wednesday described the late former governor of the defunct Western Region, Major-General Adeyinka Adebayo, as a true patriot.

According to a press release by the President's spokesman, Femi Adesina, President Buhari, in a telephone call from London to the son of the late general and former governor of Ekiti State, Niyi Adebayo, lamented that Nigeria will surely miss the uncommon patriotism and nationalism which General Adebayo typified.

The President also commiserated with the people of Ekiti State and the entire Yoruba race, noting that the late octogenarian while standing firmly for the unity of the country, also fought for the interest of his people as the President of the Yoruba Council of Elders.

President Buhari prayed that Almighty God will console the Adebayo family and grant the soul of the departed elder statesman eternal rest.

Mr Niyi Adebayo, while thanking President Buhari for the call and commiserations, wished the him good health.
