Adetoun Adediran death: Lagos assembly’s first deputy speaker dies

Lagos state house of assembly’s first female Deputy Speaker, Adetoun Adediran has died in the early hours of Wednesday after a brief illness.

Adediran died early today, Wednesday, 5 January, 2022 after a brief illness. She was the first elected female Deputy Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly when she served between 1999 and 2003.

Since then she has held many political offices including being the Women Leader of the Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The Spokesperson of the Lagos APC, Mr Seye Oladejo, confirmed this when contacted by a Punch correspondent.

He said, “She was a former women leader for Lagos Central, a consummate politician and a committed leader of her people who contributed immensely to the growth of the party and the development of Lagos State. She will be sorely missed.”
