The lawmaker representing Oyo South Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Senator Sharafadeen Alli, has described the death of Princess Adebowale Adenike Atoyebi, the All Progressives Congress (APC) Women Leader in Oyo North Senatorial District as a great loss to the family and the party.
This was contained in a statement made available to newsmen by his Special Adviser on Media, Akeem Abas, on Thursday.
The deceased was said to have died in the early hours of Thursday, few years after the death of her father, the late Alamodu of Ago-Amodu, Oba Lawal Oyetola Adebowale.
Alli described the deceased as a
dedicated and selfless leader who worked tirelessly towards the development of Oyo State as well as Nigeria.
“It is with heavy hearts that we receive the news of the passing of Princess Adebowale Adenike Atoyebi, the APC Women Leader in Oyo North Senatorial District.
“Her demise is a great loss to our party and to the Nigerian political landscape,” he said.
He said that the late Atoyebi was a trailblazer for women in politics, a champion of the marginalised and beacon of hope for the people of Oyo North.
The lawmaker said that the late Atoyebi’s legacy as a passionate and committed leader would live on, adding that she will always be remembered for her unwavering commitment to the party.
“As we mourn her passing, we take solace in the fact that she lived a life of service to humanity and made significant contributions to the growth and development of her community,” he said.
Alli extended his deepest condolences to the late Atoyebi’s family, friends, colleagues and the entire APC family in Oyo State.
He prayed that God grants them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss and grant the deceased eternal rest in His bosom.
