Ashafa, the immediate past senator representing Lagos East Senatorial District, expressed his condolences to the grieving family and the entire Lagos state All Progressives Congress (APC) community.
He described Jeje as more than just a colleague but also a brother and friend.
“The late Jeje, a multifaceted individual, was known for his contributions to public service as a lawyer, banker, philanthropist, and businessman.
“His legacy was prominently marked by his tenure as a commissioner where he showcased his expertise and dedication in addressing the housing challenges faced by the people of Lagos state.
“Bosun was a decent gentleman and a technocrat who dedicated his life to the betterment of our dear state, Lagos. He was a dependable ally, always working toward the progress of Lagos state.”
In this time of grief and loss, Ashafa extended his prayers for the Jeje family, seeking solace and strength from Almighty Allah to endure the difficult period.
