Governor Liyel Imoke of Cross River State has expressed shock and sadness over the untimely death of Alhaji Ibrahim Ademola Fashola, father of Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola.
Imoke lamented that the septuagenarian passed away at such a critical period when his wise and invaluable counsel was most needed.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Christian Ita, Imoke described the late Fashola as a worthy community leader, who lived a fulfilled life serving his people, Lagos State in particular and Nigeria in general.
The Governor, who said the demise of Pa Fashola has left a vacuum that will be difficult to fill, prayed Allah to grant Governor Fashola, his family and the people of Lagos State the fortitude to bear the loss.
