Deputy Governor of Oyo State, Engr. Rauf Olaniyan yesterday led the state delegation on a condolence visit to the family of Kehinde Ayoola, the State Commissioner for Environment and Natural Resources, who died on Thursday morning.
While condoling the wife of the deceased, Prof. Olukemi Ayoola, Olaniyan described the demise of Ayoola as unexpected and a great loss of an active player in the Makinde administration.
This was as the state government suspended the executive members of Bodija International Market for their alleged involvement in illegal collection of fees from traders.
The Deputy Governor said the late Ayoola was not a dormant member of the state executive but a resourceful and active contributor to the state executive meetings. He consoled the wife, children and the entire family of the deceased to accept the heartfelt sympathy of the state cabinet and the people of Oyo state.
