Ademola-FasholaThe Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Abuja on Tuesday described the death of Pa Ademola Fashola, father of Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State, as an “irreparable loss” to the nation.

This is contained in a statement issued by the Acting National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Tony Okeke, in Abuja.

It said the deceased, until his death, remained a shining example of humility and a source of inspiration for the younger generation.

The statement added that the deceased was well known for his forthrightness and candour in handling issues and it earned him the love and respect of all who came around him.

“The passage of Fashola, even at the ripe age of 80, has indeed, left a big vacuum not only in the Fashola family, but in Lagos State and the entire nation at large.

“The leadership and entire members of the PDP hereby commiserate with Lagos State governor over the death of his father,” the statement said.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the deceased, who retired from Daily Times Plc, died in Lagos, while his son was in Saudi Arabia performing the lesser hajj.

    Apologies to those concerned but how is his demise an irreparable loss to the nation. Before his death I haven’t heard of him or even my parents hearing anything of his deeds. Politicians need to stop using events like this to score cheap political points. Anybody that dies now is always regarded as a great leader.
