Prince Oyinlola in a statement he released on Sunday said the deceased was more than a leader for Muslims in the state but a father figure for the entire state.

He stated that the late  Sheikh  Olayiwola was a very strong moral voice in the state who was very courageous in speaking the truth at all times.

“In my years in Government, I saw the late Sheikh as a man who displayed very rare attributes of truthfulness, courage and candour in all his private and public engagements. He was a true Muslim who never sold his conscience. He was never afraid to say the truth no matter how unpleasant it might be.

“Sheikh Olayiwola was a father to me and his death is a personal loss. My prayer is that Almighty Allah will grant him Aljanah and will comfort his family, friends, Osun state and the Muslim Ummah,” Prince Oyinlola said.
