Former Governor of Ondo State, Olusegun Mimiko, has described the lawmaker representing Akure South/Akure North Federal Constituency in the National Assembly, Hon Adedayo Omolafe, popularly known as ‘Expensive’ who died in the early hours of Monday as a politician with unquantifiable amount of street credibility and respectability.
According to Mimiko, who described the federal lawmaker’s death as a huge loss to the Akure people and Ondo State in at large, the ability of Adedayo to easily connect with the people, irrespective of status will be difficult for anyone to sustain.
Mimiko, in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media and Digital Communications, John Paul Akinduro, said that the huge vacuum left behind by the federal lawmaker will be difficult to fill.
He added that late Adedayo was known and respected by the commoners, who he gave time and energy to court and serve enormously.
“His incredible ability to connect with the people, the high and the lowly alike, is one major value he will be leaving behind.
“Expensive had an unquantifiable amount of street credibility and respectability uncommon among the elite,” the ex-governor stated.
