Hon. Olaifa Mourns Former Governor Adetunji Olurin


A member of the House of Representatives, representing Egbado North/Imeko Afon Federal Constituency at the National Assembly, Abuja, Hon Olaifa Jimoh Aremu popularly called OJA has  mourned the death of the former Military Governor of Oyo State, General Adetunji Idowu Olurin (rtd), who passed on Saturday morning at the age of 76.


Olaifa in a statement on Saturday, expressed shock over the news of the death of Olurin, who he described as a consummate administrator and a disciplinarian.


His words "General Adetunji Olurin (Rtd) lived an exemplary life of Service.  The news of the death of our dear elder statesman, General Adetunji Idowu Olurin (Rtd) came with mixed feelings for me: on the one hand it is very painful as we still need his likes very much around us and on the other hand, it is indeed celebration of a life well spent.


"The General was an elderly friend of my family that we learnt so much from his pool of knowledge while alive and we are so proud of his achievements as the former Military Administrator of Oyo, Ekiti States and Commander of the ECOMOG Force in Liberia. The entire Nigeria, Ogun State and Ogun West has lost a patriot, consummate administrator and a disciplinarian.


"On behalf of my family and the entire Constituents of Egbado North/ Imeko Afon Federal Constituency, I commiserate with the Olurin family of Ilaro, friends and associates of our departed hero; I pray that Allah should grant him Aljanah Firdaous".
