” I received  the news of the death of my elder brother,  astute political  statesman and  Former Governor of Oyo State,  Chief Christopher Adebayo  Alao- Akala with a huge sense of loss, shock and pain. His death not only came suddenly,  but quite devastating. He was like a big brother to me, so his death has robbed me of a dear one who was so passionate  about the development  of Ogbomosho, Oyo State and Nigeria at large.”

The Minister  further stated “His death is a huge loss not only  to the family, but  especially Ogbomosho, a place he loved and lived for. His death has created a huge vacuum in our political  space. Coming at a time when his political  sagacity and  clout was most needed makes it such a monumental  loss. 

May God console his family, his political  associates and  the people of Oyo state on the demise of this great personality.
