Popular House Of Rep Member, Adedayo Omolafe Dies 'Mysteriously' In Ondo

Omolafe, who didn’t show any sign of sickness before he slept last night, was said to have slumped and died in the early hours of Monday, August 16.

The Publicity Secretary of the PDP in Ondo State, Kennedy Peretei, who confirmed the lawmaker’s death in a statement, said his departure was too much to bear especially when he wasn’t sick.

He described Hon. Omolafe, popularly known as ‘Expensive’, as a political star since he was elected as Executive Chairman of Akure South Local Government Area in 2004 under the platform of the PDP.

In the statement titled, “The exit of Omolafe Adedayo is a colossal loss to ONDO PDP”, Kennedy condoled with his wife, children and the entire family and prayed for the repose of his soul.

“Everyone will die one day or another. But some departures are too much to bear. The sudden and tragic demise of Hon. Omolafe Adedayo, popularly known as Expensive is difficult to accept, especially when he was not sick.

“Expensive had been a constant political star since he was elected as Executive Chairman of Akure South Local Government Area in 2004 under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). He was the State Co-ordinator of the Sure-P program under former President Goodluck Jonathan.

“His dream to represent Akure South/ Akure North Federal Constituency at the House of Representatives did not come to fruition since 2007. Now that he became elected in 2019, on the platform of PDP, the cold hand of death has extinguished this bright star in the middle of his tenure.

“The Peoples Democratic Party, Ondo State Chapter is pained. We cannot find the exact words to convey the extent of our grief. The exit of Expensive is a collosal and irreparable loss to our party in Akure Federal Constituency and the entire PDP in the State.

“Hon. Omolafe Adedayo is a household name in Akure. His footprints on the sands of time are indelible. Our party commiserates with his wife, children, and indeed the extended family. May God in His infinite mercies grant him bliss in the world beyond,” the statement reads.

His death is coming just a few days after the wife of former Nigerian President, Hadiza Shehu Shagari died in a hospital after battling COVID-19 complications in Abuja.
