Ondo State governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN), mourns the founder of Oodua Peoples Congress, Dr. Federick Fasehun who died today, December 1, 2018.
In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Segun Ajiboye,
Governor Akeredolu described the late Fasehun as a disciplined citizen, a Pan-Yoruba and nationalist to the core and intelligent medical practitioner who used his energy and other resources to fight for the interests of his people and the common man.
Admitting that his death is a shock to Ondo State and the entire country, the governor adds that the deceased will be missed by lovers of justice and peace.
As a politician, the governor is of the opinion that the late Fasehun’s argument for egalitarian society where merit and equity are made parametric conditions for selecting leaders or people’s representatives will continue to dominate socio-political discourse.
Governor Akeredolu says social scientists will remember the deceased as a detribalised Nigerian per excellence whose place in the nation’s political history cannot be wished away, even in a hurry.
