Former Ondo State Commissioner for Works, Engr. Gboye Adegbenro has commiserated with Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu and entire good people of Ondo State over the death of the state Commissioner for Health, Dr Wahab Adegbenro.

Adegbenro, when leaders of APC in Ifedore Local Government Area led by Tobi Ogunleye paid him a condolence visit to the family home of late Health Commissioner in Ilara-Mokin, described his uncle’s death as unfortunate.

He said the late Adegbenro, as the Health Commissioner and Chairman of Inter-ministerial Committee on COVID-19 in the state, was undoubtedly a critical frontliner in the fight against the virus.

He said, “I am still in shock, it is still a dream. This shouldn’t have happened to him at this crucial time in our country, the family have lost a son and he has left a vaccum.

“I am in pain over his demise, he has been a good Ambassador of Ilara-Mokin in particular and that of Ondo State at large, we will all miss him.

“His demise is a great loss to Ondo State.

“It is on record that until his demise, Dr Adegbenro proved himself as a distinguished medical professional, who dutifully served the people of Ondo State.”

The late Adegbenro died on Thursday at the age of 65.
