Akala’s death, unexpected, a huge loss - Minister Sunday Dare

January, 12 2022.

Minister of Youth and sports Development Chief Sunday Dare has expressed deep sadness over the death of former Oyo State Governor, Chief Adebayo Alao- Akala, describing it as a huge loss to Ogbomosho, Oyo State and Nigeria.


According to a statement sent by the Minister who is reportedly on his way back from the African Nations Cup in Cameroon, he said it was really difficult to accept the reality of the news of someone as close to him as Alao Akala was.


" I received the news of the death of my elder brother, astute political statesman and Former Governor of Oyo State, Chief Christopher Adebayo Alao- Akala with a huge sense of loss, shock and pain. His death not only came suddenly, but quite devastating. He was like a big brother to me, so his death has robbed me of a dear one who was so passionate about the development of Ogbomosho, Oyo State and Nigeria at large."

The Minister further stated " His death is a huge loss not only to the family, but especially Ogbomosho, a place he loved and lived for. His death has created a huge vacuum in our political space. Coming at a time when his political sagacity and clout was most needed makes it such a monumental loss.


May God console his family, his political associates and the people of Oyo state on the demise of this great personality.
