Gov Fayemi Mourns Adeoti


The Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has expressed shock over the  untimely death of the Deputy Speaker of Ekiti State House of Assembly, Hon. Saliu  Adeoti.

According to him, Adeoti’s death “at this auspicious moment in the history of our  dear state came to me as a rude shock.  The affable deputy speaker stood like a  solid rock in the fight for justice, pursuit of peace and liberation of Ekiti people  from the shackles of political marauders.”

The governor, whose statement on Adeoti’s demise was made available to P.M.NEWS  through his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Mr. Mojeed Jamiu, added: “We were in  the trenches together for more than 42 months, fighting for justice and demanding  equity for our people. His short days on earth were marked with unshaken patriotism,  as he was a quintessential generalissimo who fought and died for a principle that  Ekiti people should live as freeborn. He stood against oppression and  neo-colonialism.”

He said “Adeoti lived like a star who we did not envisage an early eclipse, but the  cold hands of death snatched him away and gave him eternal censorship. This,  undoubtedly, will deny Ekiti people the much required leadership from young and  cerebral Saliu.

“We know for sure that if there is life after life, he will live it for Ekiti people  and if God gives him another opportunity to come back, he will come again an Ekiti  son. May your spirit continue to guide and protect the democratic principles and  freedom that you fought for gallantly and won for the good people of Ekiti.

“I pray that the Almighty God will grant your family and Ekiti people the fortitude  to bear this irreparable loss. Adieu, my dear brother.”
