Late Omotoso made remarkable impact in Ekiti politics – Senate leader 

The Leader of the Senate, Senator Michael Opeyemi Bamidele, has described the death of chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti state, Paul Omotoso, as shocking and devastating.

Bamidele also expressed his heartfelt condolence to the immediate family of the politician, his community and the government and people of Ekiti state.

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

He  said this in a statement his Directorate of Media and Public Affairs issued Wednesday and noted that a great political void has been created in the state following his sudden demise.

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

He said the 61-year- old politician’s contributions to development of Ekiti, especially at the grassroots politics, are of immense measure, adding that he 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.”
