Gbajabiamila saddened by Sen. Osinowo’s death

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rep. Femi Gbajabiamila has described as shocking and saddening the passing of Sen. Bayo Osinowo.

Gbajabiamila described the late Senator as a fine politician who contributed immensely to the growth and development of Lagos State through his membership of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

In a condolence message by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Lanre Lasisi, the Speaker recalled his engagements with the late Senator all in an attempt to better the lives of Lagosians.

“Senator Bayo Osinowo’s death is a painful loss to Lagosians. Here was a man who dedicated himself to the service of his people. He was always at the forefront of delivering the dividends of democracy to the electorate.

“As a member of the Lagos State House of Assembly for many years, he endeared himself to his constituents through different laudable projects. And as a Senator from June last year until his demise, Senator Osinowo was already proving his mettle.

“At this moment of grief, my thoughts are with members of his immediate family, his constituents, the people of Lagos State in general and the Nigerian Senate,” Gbajabiamila said.

While praying for the repose of the soul of the late Senator, Gbajabiamila prayed God to give his family the fortitude to bear the loss.

Senator Osinowo, who represented Lagos East Senatorial District, died on Monday afternoon at the age of 64. He was the chairman, Senate Committee on Industries.
