The Speaker, Oyo State House of Assembly, Hon Adebo Ogundoyin says the late Speaker of the Ekiti State House of Assembly, Hon Funminiyi Afuye was one of the best State Assembly Speakers in the country.
Hon Ogundoyin in a statement on the death of the Speaker said he was stunned when he learnt of the sudden death of Hon Afuye.
He used the medium to commiserate with the Ekiti State Government, the Ekiti State House of Assembly and the entire people of Ekiti State over the death of their Speaker.
Hon Afuye reportedly gave up the ghost Wednesday evening at the Ekiti State Teaching Hospital, Ado Ekiti after suffering cardiac arrest.
Oyo Speaker also commiserated with the Nigerian Conference of Speakers on the unfortunate incident.
He prayed to God to give the family of the deceased the fortitude to bear the loss, and protect the entire family he left behind.
” The death of Hon Funminiyi Afuye was shocking. He was one of my closest friends in the Conference of Speakers and i have benefitted immensely from his wealth of experience as a one time Commissioner in Ekiti State, and two time member of the State Assembly. I will surely miss him. All of us will miss his political experience and elderly dispositions to affairs. May God rest his soul eternally. “
