- “The death of the Treasurer of our party, Sumbo Ajose, is a painful and big loss to me personally, Lagos APC, the deceased family, and friends.”
Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has expressed sadness over the death of the Treasurer of Caretaker Committee of the Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Rebecca Ajose.
EKO HOT BLOG had reported earlier that Ajose died on Tuesday, July 13 2021, in the United States, where she was receiving treatment for an undisclosed ailment.
She was pronounced dead at the age of 55.
However, Governor Sanwo-Olu while reacting to the demise of the APC treasurer via a statement issued on Wednesday by his Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile, described Ajose as a trustworthy, committed, extremely loyal politician and an invaluable asset to Lagos APC.
The governor further said the death of Ajose was a big loss to her family, friends, associates, and the ruling party.
“The death of the Treasurer of our party, Sumbo Ajose, is a painful and big loss to me personally, Lagos APC, the deceased family, and friends. I am saddened by the passage of this indefatigable, devoted, loyal, and committed democrat and team player who played remarkable roles in the success of our party during her lifetime.
“She will be missed by her family, friends, and the entire political class, particularly Lagos APC State Executive Committee, chieftains, and members of the party across the State,” Governor Sanwo-Olu said.
Governor Sanwo-Olu prayed that God would grant ”the soul of our beloved Sumbo Ajose eternal rest and comfort the immediate and political family of the deceased”.
