Senator Michael Opeyemi Bamidele (APC, Ekiti), Leader of the Senate, has described the death of the Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State, Paul Omotoso, as shocking and devastating.

Bamidele also condoled with the immediate family of the politician, his community and the Government and People of Ekiti State, urging them to take solace in the fact that Omotoso lived for the good of mankind.

He made this known in a statement issued on Wednesday by his Directorate of Media and Public Affairs, noting that a great political void has been created in the state following his sudden demise.

He said Omotoso’s death, which occurred early hours of Wednesday, was /personally shocking to him and devastating to the entire progressive family, not only in Ekiti but also in Nigeria at large.

Adding that the 61-year-old politician’s contribution to the development of Ekiti, especially at the grassroots, was immense, adding that he played his politics with decorum, good conscience and purposeful leadership.

“With great concern, I join Ekiti sons and daughters to mourn the sudden passing of our state party chairman, Barr. Paul Omotoso who I always describe as a man with great political maturity and purposeful leadership.

“His previous tenures as a former State Commissioner, former State Secretary of our great political party and State Chairmanship which he held until his death were testimonies of his clear direction as a leader and his servant-leader dispositions.

“The remarkable contributions he made and gaps left behind by the Imesi Ekiti-born politician can not be forgotten and dumped in the dustbin of history.

“His contributions to the formation of the APC and his ability to steer the affairs of the state chapter at most difficult instances are part of the memories that we shall live with for a long time.”
