The Osun State Caretaker Chairman of the All Progressives Congress(APC), Prince Gboyega Famodun, has condoled with the Ataoja of Osogboland, Oba Jimoh Olanipekun and the entire sons and daughters of the city on the recent reported death of their illustrious and an iconic-political-figure son, Senator Bayo Salami.

Famodun said, the reported sudden death of the senator was one demise, too many.
The Igbajo-born Prince hinted that he wished the information was not true as it was tragic and sudden.
The state APC boss described the departed senator as an illustrious son of Osogbo who had used his God-given endowments for the progress of the city and its environs.
He enjoined the Ataoja, sons and daughters of Osogbo to take heart and find solace in the religious saying that: “It’s God who giveth that also taketh”.
Famodun who described death as a necessary end of all mortals stated that he was fascinated and convinced that the fallen senator successfully finished his own race in life.
In his words: “This evening news of the death of Senator Bayo Salami was too sudden and unexpected to believe. How I wished it was false! My heart ached when I heard the sad news.
“Death is a necessary end of all living things. It will come at God-appointed time.
“On behalf of my family and the entire members and leaders of our party in Osun State under my watch, I am extending my condolences to the deceased family, the Ataoja, friends, well-wishers, sons and daughters of Osogbo on the death of one of their illustrious sons, Senator Bayo Salami, in far away the United States of America.
“May God grant you the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss and forgive the departed his inadequacies”, the Osun State APC boss prayed.
