Fasanmi Brought Dignity to All Oduduwa Descendants— Ooni


The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, has described the late Afenifere leader, and elder statesman, Pa Ayo Fasanmi, as an epitome of leadership, politics, and good governance.

The traditional ruler in a tribute signed by his Director of Media and Public Affairs, Moses Olafare, further described the Second Republic senator as a man of accomplishments, who brought dignity to all descendants of Oduduwa.

Fasanmi died on Wednesday night at the age of 94 after a brief illness in Osogbo, the Osun State capital.

Ooni Ogunwusi in a glowing tribute to the late Yoruba leader said; “Pa Ayo Fasanmi was a great leader whose words, actions, and involvement in Nigerian politics brought dignity to the Yoruba people.

“He came, he saw and indeed conquered. The kind of blessings he received is uncommon and God in his infinite mercy crowned it all with a healthy long life filled with prosperity.

“We are going to miss him greatly because of the roles he has been playing as an elder statesman after stepping out of partisan politics.

“But we shall continue to remember him for the goods he did when he was with us.

“Our leaders, particularly those in the political class have a lot to learn from Pa Fasanmi’s selfless style of leadership.

“We must wake up to our responsibilities towards creating the great Nigeria of our dream.”
