Senator Osinowo’s death, a big blow – APC

Share This

By Ikechukwu Okaforadi

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said it received with shock the passing of its distinguished Senator representing Lagos East in the Senate, Chief Sikiru Adebayo Osinowo.
In a statement issued by the national publicity Secretary of the party, Lanre Issa-Onilu, APC said “We join other Nigerians, the entire National Assembly, the good people of Lagos East in particular and Lagos State in general to mourn the passage of a democrat, who contributed immensely to the development of Lagos State as a lawmaker in the House of Assembly and Nigeria as a Senator.
“Though his tenure in the Senate was brief, our great party appreciates the loyalty of Senator Osinowo to the cause of the APC-led government.
“Fondly called “Pepperito” by friends and associates, he was a four-term member of the Lagos House of Assembly, where he represented Kosofe constituency. In the 9th Senate, Osinowo chaired the senate committee on commerce, industries and investment.
“We commiserate with his immediate family, political associates in Lagos State and beyond, and the Senate for this irreparable loss and pray that the Almighty God grants the deceased peaceful and eternal rest.”
