We receive with deep grief the sad news of the demise of Honourable Obafemi Fagbola (OBAF) from Ile-Ife.
Hon. Fagbola is a former Local government chairman in Ife Central and Commissioner in the state of Osun in his days before the end came yesterday.
Obaf, as fondly called by friends and admirers, was a commissioner for tourism and culture in Osun State under the first term of Oyinlola led administration in the state
between 2003 to 2007.
We expresses deep and heartfelt condolences to departed sorrowing family and joins in their prayers for the deceased.
May the Lord Almighty give the entire family strength and courage to bear this irreparable loss.
