The party, in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, in Abuja on Thursday, expressed sadness over Ayoola’s demise.
Ologbondiyan described the late commissioner as a very loyal and dedicated party member, “who had always stood behind Makinde and played key roles in his governorship campaign and eventual victory at the polls.”
He recalled the commitment with which Ayoola carried out his duties and the outstanding managerial skills with which he executed all assignments given to him.
