The Speaker of the Lagos House of Assembly, Hon. Mudashiru Ajayi Obasa, and members of the Assembly paid a condolence visit to the immediate family of the late Senator Bayo Osinowo at their Molipa, Ijebu-Ode residence on Sunday.
The late Bayo Osinowo, who died on Monday, June 15, after a brief illness, was a member of the Lagos House of Assembly for 16 consecutive years before moving to the senate in 2019.
Speaking with the family, Obasa extolled the sterling qualities and contributions of the late Osinowo to the growth of the Lagos House of Assembly in his 16 years as a member.
He prayed to Almighty Allah to forgive him all his sins and grant him aljannah fridaus.
The Speaker said that the family should take solace in the fact that the late senator was loved by many because of his benevolence and sacrifice.
He also informed the family that the House of Assembly would be holding a special parliamentary session in honour of Senator Osinowo on Tuesday
He urged the family to choose a representative that would speak on their behalf at the session.
Dr. Tunde Osinowo, the first son of the deceased, who spoke on behalf of the family, thanked Obasa and the members for the visit.
Dr. Osinowo said that his father had prepared them for his demise through his talks and deeds, while he was alive but that it was hard for them to cope with the reality of his sudden death.
The Speaker and the members thereafter prayed for the deceased, who until his death, was the Senator representing Lagos East.
