President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the Alao-Akala family, the Government and people of Oyo State on the demise of a former governor of the state, Otunba Christopher Adebayo Alao-Akala.
The president, according to a release issued on Wednesday by his Media Adviser, Femi Adesina, affirmed that Alao-Akala as a former police officer and civilian governor with an extensive political career, served the country and the people of Oyo State with dedication, making very important contributions to the development of institutions and communities.
President Buhari trusted that family, friends and associates who mourn the late governor, will honour his vision of entrenching good governance in the country and passion to lift the downtrodden in the society.
The president prayed God Almighty to grant the departed eternal rest and comfort those who mourn.
