Ooni condoles with Makinde’s family
The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, on Monday, expressed sadness on the death of Rep. Dejo Makinde.
This is contained in Ooni’s condolence message sent to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ile-Ife by his Director of Media and Public Affairs, Mr Moses Olafare.
He said that Makinde, who represented Ife Central Constituency in Osun House of Assembly, was a gentleman endowed with attributes of “Omoluabi’’.
According to him, his positive impacts will remain indelible on the minds of not only inhabitants of Ile-Ife but the entire state of Osun, having patriotically served as Ife Central Local Government boss.
The monarch said that “although he left us when his courage and carriage would have been of immense benefit to Ile-Ife and Osun, we pray his gentle soul rest in perfect peace’’.
