Ekiti Reps mourn APC chairman, Omotoso

Members of the House of Representatives from Ekiti State have expressed sadness over the death of the state chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Paul Omotoso.

Omotoso died at a medical facility in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital in the early hours of Wednesday, after a brief illness.

In a statement of condolence issued in Abuja and signed by the leader of the caucus, Olufemi Bamishele, the federal lawmakers said Omotoso’s passing left a void in the hearts of all Ekiti members of the House of Representatives who were all elected on the platform of the APC.

The statement read in part, “His (Omotoso’s) leadership was marked by unwavering dedication to the APC and tireless efforts to advance the peace, progress, and prosperity of Ekiti State.

“Under his stewardship, the APC in Ekiti State achieved the historic feat of succeeding itself as the ruling party in the 2022 gubernatorial election – the first time a back-to-back victory for a party in the political history of Ekiti State was recorded.

“Barrister Omotoso’s leadership acumen and visionary leadership contributed to the internal cohesion in the party, and he was a bridge builder between the younger and older generations.”

The lawmakers recalled the positions held by the deceased politicians in the past, saying, “Omotoso excelled in the various public offices he held prior to becoming State Chairman, including APC State Secretary; Special Adviser to the Governor on Legal Matters; Special Adviser to the Governor on Political Matters; as well as a two-time Commissioner.”

According to the lawmakers, Omotoso’s loyalty, commitment, integrity, and competence “Were evident over the course of many decades of an illustrious political and public service career.

“His inclusive leadership style ensured that every member’s voice was heard and valued. His integrity, compassion, and commitment to the ideals of our party were truly inspiring.”

While commiserating with the family, friends, associates, the government and people of Ekiti State, the lawmakers prayed to God to grant the deceased eternal repose.
