Sanwo-Olu, Tinubu, others mourn Adeniran-Ogunsanya

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has grieved for former Secretary to the State Government (SSG) Princess Adenrele Adeniran-Ogunsanya who died yesterday after a brief illness.

In a condolence message by his Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile, Sanwo-Olu praised the deceased’s contributions to governance, growth and development of Lagos State.

National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu also expressed profound sadness over the passing of Princess Adeniran-Ogunsanya.

He said the death was a colossal loss to the people of Ikorodu in particular and the entire state.

Tinubu, in a condolence statement yesterday by his media office, signed by Mr. Tunde Rahman, said: “I received the news of the passing of former Secretary to the Lagos State Government, Princess Adenrele Adeniran-Ogunsanya, with deep sadness.

“Her death at this time is particularly tragic because only about a week ago when I glimpsed her, she looked strong and full of life. Princess Adenrele was the first daughter of the late elder statesman and prominent politician, Chief Adeniran Ogunsanya, from Ikorodu. She bore the family name with grace and charm.

“Princess Adeniran-Ogunsanya made contributions to the growth and development of Lagos. As Secretary to the State Government in the first term of Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola, SAN, she discharged herself well. She left no one in doubt about her commitment to an efficient, functional and progressive Lagos.

“The people of Lagos State, particularly the Ikorodu community, have lost a worthy daughter. I know she will never be forgotten in a hurry.

“My condolences to the Adeniran Ogunsanya family, Governor Sanwo-Olu, the people of Ikorodu and Lagos State. I pray that her soul finds eternal rest. Amen.”

House of Assembly Speaker Mudashiru Obasa also described Adenrele’s death as a major loss to the state.
