Leader of the Senate, Sen. Opeyemi Bamidele, has described the death of Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti, Mr Paul Omotoso, as shocking and devastating.

Bamidele stated this in a statement issued by his Directorate of Media and Public Affairs on Wednesday in Abuja.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Omotoso, who was kidnapped sometime in 2023 but regained freedom few days after, died in the early hours of Wednesday during a brief illness.

According to Bamidele, a great political void has been created in the state, following the sudden death of the APC chairman.

He expressed his heartfelt condolences to the immediate family of the politician, his community and the government and people of Ekiti.

Bamidele urged them to take solace in the fact that Omotoso lived for the good of mankind.

According to him, Omotoso’s death, which occurred in the early hours of Wednesday, is personally shocking to him and devastating to the entire progressive family, not only in Ekiti, but in Nigeria at large.

The lawmaker said that the contributions of the 61-year-old politician to the development of Ekiti, especially at the grassroots, were of immense measure.

He noted that Omotoso played his politics with decorum, good conscience and purposeful leadership.

“With great concern, I join Ekiti sons and daughters to mourn the sudden passing of our state party chairman, Paul Omotoso, who I always describe as a man with great political maturity and purposeful leadership.

“His tenures as a former State Commissioner, former State Secretary of our great political party and the chairmanship which he held until his death were testimonies to his clear direction as a leader and his servant-leader dispositions.

“The remarkable contributions he made and the gaps left behind by the Imesi Ekiti-born politician can not be forgotten and dumped in the dustbin of history.

“His contributions to the formation of APC and his ability to steer the affairs of the state chapter at most difficult instances are part of the memories that we shall live with for a long time,” the senator remarked. (NAN)
