Bellow is the statement Unedited:
Ondo State governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN), mourns the founder of Oodua Peoples Congress, Dr. Federick Fasehun who died today, December 1, 2018.
Governor Akeredolu describes the late Fasehun as a disciplined citizen, nationalist to the core and intelligent medical practitioner who used his energy and other resources to fight for the interests of common man.
Admitting that his death is a chock to Ondo State and the entire country, the governor adds that the deceased will be missed by lovers of justice and peace.
As a politician, the governor is of the opinion that the late Fasehun’s argument for egalitarian society where merit and equity are made parametric conditions for selecting leaders or people’s representatives will continue to dominate socio-political discourse.
Governor Akeredolu says social scientists will remember the deceased as a detribalised Nigeria per excellence whose place in the nation’s political history cannot be wished away.
