Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq on Thursday bemoaned the death of APC stalwart Chief Rex Olawoye, describing him as a patriot and a pillar of the struggle that enthroned the Otoge administration in the state.
This was contained in a statement signed and released to newsmen in Ilorin by the Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Rafiu Ajalaye on Thursday.
“Baba Rex Olawoye was a delight to be with, a soft-spoken gentleman and orator, a lover of younger generation, a dogged fighter, and certainly a statesman who played a pivotal role in the political development of the state over the past few decades. We will miss his clarity of thought, his brilliance, and his constructive advice on governance.
His words of wisdom even on his sickbed when I last spoke with him were quite reassuring as we were earnestly expectant of his recovery,” the Governor said.
“On behalf of my family, the government and people of the state, I salute the commitments of Chief Rex Olawoye to the collective struggle of our people and the growth of our state. My profound commiserations go to his family, his generation of wise Kwara Elders and the APC family in Kwara State. May God comfort the family he left behind and grant him repose.” the governor prayed.
