Governor Kayode Fayemi has expressed shock over the demise of Chief Babatunde Abegunde, the Chairman of the State Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM).
In a condolence message signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Yinka Oyebode, Fayemi described the deceased as diligent, devoted and trustworthy party leader and public servant.
He recalled that Abegunde gave his best to the All Progressives Congress and the government of Ekiti in different capacities.
The governor said Abegunde’s death came as a shock, adding that the late TESCOM chairman did not show any sign of illness during their last meeting.
He said the late Abegunde would be sorely missed for his forthrightness and dedication to duty.
“I, on behalf of the Government and good people of Ekiti State, commiserate with the family of our dear departed party leader, Chief Abegunde.
“Our prayer is that God will grant him eternal rest and comfort his family,” he added.
Abegunde died on Sunday after a brief illness at the age of 75.
