By Steve Oni, Ilorin

Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has commiserated with the Edu community and the APC family over the sudden death of Mr. James Kolo, a commissioner-designate of the Federal Character Commission (FCC).

AbdulRazaq described Kolo as a loyal party man and a team player whose death Tuesday morning, he noted, was a great loss to his family, the people of Edu local government, and the entire state.

“We are devastated by the death of Mr. Kolo after recently falling ill. He was a staunch party man and a bridge builder who worked hard alongside other patriots for the success of the APC in the state,” the Governor said in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary Rafiu Ajakaye.

“We are consoled by the fact that he was a good man who got along with everybody that crossed his path. Many knew him for being a generous person. We commiserate with his family and pray the Almighty God to comfort them and rest his gentle soul.”

Also, the Speaker, Kwara state House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Salihu Yakubu Danladi, has commiserated with the good people of Patigi Emirate, family, friends and associates of Mr. James Kolo, Kwara state FCC Commissioner designate, whose death occurred on Tuesday.

“It was with a rude shock that I received the news of the demise of Mr. James Kolo, who was recently announced as Commissioner designate for Federal Character Commission,” Danladi said in a condolence statement issued by his Special Assistant on Media, Ibrahim Sheriff.

He added: “The demise of Mr. James Kolo, who until his death was a loyal party man, committed to the progress and development of Kwara state is a colossal loss, especially at a time his expertise and wealth of experience was being sought in the Nation’s service.

“Thoughts and prayers of the 9th Kwara legislature are with the people of Patigi and the family of the deceased at this trying time. We pray Allah comfort them and grant the late James Kolo eternal rest.”
