Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has mourned the death of the Lagos State Governor, Sir Michael Otedola.
The Governor in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Yinka Oyebode, said Otedola was an uncommon politician who served the people without expecting anything in return.
He described Otedola as a humble politician who was accessible to his people who needed his assistance, support and counsel.
Fayemi noted that Otedola brought maturity and experience to governance during his tenure as Lagos State Chief Executive between January 1992 and November 1993.
According to him, Otedola played politics without bitterness and put the interest of the masses first when he served as Lagos State helmsman.
He urged contemporary politicians to emulate the virtues of integrity and transparency displayed by Otedola whom he said was never accused of corruption after he left the Government House.
Fayemi said Otedola remains on the positive side of history in Lagos State in particular and Nigeria in general and his legacies would continue to live in the minds of the people.
