Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has commiserated with Vice President Namadi Sambo on the death of his younger brother, Captain Yusuf Sambo (rtd), who died in an auto crash last Sunday.
Fayemi, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Olayinka Oyebode, described the death of Yusuf , 58, as tragic and heart-rending.
The Governor noted that the deceased, who was a retired pilot, was one of the best professionals in the aviation industry where he served meritoriously for about two decades.
He urged the Vice President and the entire Sambo family to take solace in the fact that the deceased lived a good life and had a positive impact on his generation during his lifetime.
The loss of a loved one, Governor Fayemi noted, remains one of the harsh realities human beings have to come to terms with as it exempts no one irrespective of status in the society.
Governor Fayemi prayed God to grant Yusuf Sambo a peaceful repose and keep the family left behind to mourn his untimely demise.
The Governor also prayed God to grant the family, associates, friends and well wishers of the late Yusuf Sambo the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
“The government and the entire good people of Ekiti State join the Vice President and his family in mourning the deceased and pray that the Almighty Allah would heal the wound created by the loss.”, Fayemi said in the statement.
