The Chairman of the Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), Dr Dominic Adegbola has died.
According to a statement issued on Wednesday, 25 August, 2021, by the party’s State Publicity Secretary, Taofik Gani, Adegbola died of Covid-19 related ailments.
”The late senior medical practitioner has been an exceptional politician who had deployed much of his hard earned money into philantropism. He was the Medical Director of Santa Maria Hospital. Dr Dominic was a grassroots politician from the days of Action Group.
”He had held many political positions, notable amongst being State SDP officer, State Chairman of PAC; National Chairman of APN (founded by late Jakande) and State Chairman of Lagos PDP,” the statement said.
He had also contested Lagos State governorship election on the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
Adegbola was the Jakande group’s candidate for the Lagos West Senatorial District primary of the SDP, a contest between him and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Gani described his death, “as Matyrdom as he was dogged about the emancipation of the oppressed, pauperized and less privileged.
”He stood for the development of Lagos and he sure regrets that this Lagos is not as he wished. He will be forever remembered in Lagos politics. We condole with his family. All PDP flags In the state shall fly at halfmast. All PDP meetings at this time are to be prayers for him.
“Burial arrangements shall be as presented by the family”
