Delta State Governor, Senator (Dr) Ifeanyi Okowa, has commiserated with the Alao-Akala family, the people and Government of Oyo State on the passing of former Governor, Otunba Adebayo Alao-Akala.

Akala, who ruled Oyo State from 2007 to 2011 died in the early hours of Wednesday in Ogbomoso. He was 71.

In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Olisa Ifeajika, in Asaba, Okowa said the passing of Alao-Akala at this critical time of the country’s political history was painful and regrettable.

“The late Alao-Akala was a patriot and a political icon whose life-long dedication and indefatigable commitment to serving the people will continue to be remembered.

“His contributions to the socio-political and economic development of Nigeria and indeed, humanity will remain indelible.
