Adeola commiserates with Lagos Deputy Gov. over brother’s death



Vote Buhari for progress, Sen. Adeola urges Nigerians

The Chairman, Senate Committee on Finance, Sen. Solomon Adeola, on Thursday commiserated with the Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Dr Obafemi Hamzat, over the death of his younger brother, Dr Haroun Hamzat.

Adeola, in a condolence message to Hamzat, said Wednesday’s death of Haroun, a medical doctor, at a young age of 37, was not just a loss to the entire Hamzat family but also to the nation.

According to the senator, the death of Haroun is particularly painful especially as Nigeria is in dire need of frontline personnel to fight COVID-19.

“It is a sad development that we have lost such a skilled young man at a time when his services to the people are needed”, he said.

Adeola prayed for the peaceful repose of the deceased and fortitude for the family to bear the loss.

He also urged all Nigerians to continue to abide by prescribed COVID-19 protocols in view of the resurgence of the pandemic.
