The statement read: “A luminous epoch in socio-political crusading has come to a dignifying end with the passing of elder statesman, Senator Ayo Fasanmi.

“But we take solace in the comforting truth that our highly revered father played his enviable part in the socio-cultural and political development of Yourba land before his transition to eternal rest in the bosom of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

“Senator Ayo Fasanmi was a lawmaker par excellence who served our country meritoriously; a foremost nationalist who lived an incorruptible lifestyle worthy of emulation; a courageous leader whose role was invaluable to the NADECO struggle; and a political activist who was one of the last set of survivors of the first order in the post-independence era.

“My family and I offer our deepest condolences to the immediate family of Pa Fasanmi, even though his passing was a glorious exit that must be celebrated by all and sundry.

“I take consolation in a life well-lived, and in also knowing that in his departure, we can all aspire to live by his ideals of selfless service, patriotism, and celebrate the end of a very eventful, dedicated, illustrious and industrious life,” the statement added.
