Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has described the death of the former Ondo State Governor, Dr. Olusegun Agagu as “tragic and extremely shocking.”

 Fayemi in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Olayinka Oyebode, said the death of the former Ondo governor was a “blow below the belt” for the political class in the country.

The governor said Ekiti is sharing in the loss of Agagu who served as Deputy Governor in the old Ondo State of which Ekiti was part before it was created in 1996.

He noted that the death was more painful by the fact that Agagu never showed any sign of ill- health adding that the late governor as a refined politician who carried on with his political activities in and out of office with maturity, candour and grace.

Fayemi said public service had been part of Agagu’s life as the late politician left the classroom as a Geology teacher for the slippery world of politics in his quest to touch the lives of his people.

He said, “Dr. Agagu’s life epitomized service to his people and humanity and he used every opportunity he had to use his intellect, time, energy and resources for the betterment of mankind.

“He served as a very loyal Deputy Governor under our revered father, Evangelist Bamidele Olumilua and the legacies of that administration are still there for all to see.

“Dr. Agagu also served his country diligently as Minister of Aviation and Minister of Power and Steel.

“His service as Governor of Ondo State gave him an opportunity to contribute immensely to the development of the Sunshine State in the areas of education, health, infrastructure, security, poverty alleviation among others”.

“On behalf of the government and the good people of Ekiti State, we send our condolences to government and the good people of  Ondo State who are mourning this great loss and we pray God to grant them and the entire family of the late Governor the fortitude to bear the loss”.
