The APC has received with sorrow the death of Otumba Alao Akala, former Governor of Oyo State and APC chieftain in the state.
It is with grief and sorrow that we lost His Excellency Alao Akala at this moment of our national life.
Akala was a man of the people who increased the fortunes of the party in Oyo State and Nigeria.
The late Governor was a national political asset that was sought after by all political parties.
It is saddening that we lost this asset at a time when we commence the process to our next general election.
On behalf of the APC Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee and members of the party, l pray God to grant the deceased eternal rest.
I also condole the Alao Akala family, the government and people of Oyo State over this huge loss.
Hon. Mai Mala Buni,
APC Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee.
