Alao-Akala’s achievement records remain enviable – Atiku



Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has described late former Oyo State governor, Chief Adebayo Alao-Akala, as a prolific politician, whose records of achievement as governor remain enviable.

Abubakar, in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja, said the death of the former Oyo state governor came as a ‘rude shock.’

The former vice president condoled with the people and government of Oyo state for the loss of a notable leader.

He urged family and associates of the late Alao-Akala to take solace in the good legacies that he left behind.

Abubakar prayed that God accept the soul of the late former governor and grants him eternal rest.

Alao-Akala died at his Ogbomoso residence on Wednesday, at the age of 71.
