The All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council (PCC) has expressed sympathy with the family of AbdulSobur Olawale (also known as Omititi) who died in Jos, Plateau state on Tuesday.
Politicos had reported that Omititi, 60, slumped and later died while he was being taken to hospital. He had attended the campaign flag off of former Lagos state governor Bola Tinubu.
“We express our heartfelt sympathy and condolences to the immediate family, friends, associates of Late Hon. AbdulSobur Olawale (Omititi) who passed on yesterday in Jos after attending our Presidential Campaign Flag Off,” according to a statement by Director of Media and Publicity of the PCC, Bayo Onanuga.
“We particularly send our condolences to his colleagues at the Lagos State House of Assembly where he dutifully served his people of Mushin Constituency 2 and Lagos State in general.
“Hon. Olawale was an accomplished politician and grassroots mobiliser who stayed committed to the ideal of progressive politics and supported our leader and Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu till the end.
“It was his commitment to Asiwaju Tinubu’s Presidential bid and progressive politics that made him travel to Jos to be part of the historic flag off of our campaign rally when he was not in the best of health.
“The progressive family in Lagos State and Nigeria has lost a gallant believer in our ideology and we pray that his family will find comfort in his good deeds.
“We pray Almighty God to grant his soul eternal rest.”
