Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has expressed his heartfelt condolence on the death of his Senior Special Assistant (Media) on Party Matters, Elder Sam Oluwalana.

The late Oluwalana passed on Tuesday in Ado-Ekiti during a brief illness.

The governor, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Yinka Oyebode, said the death of Oluwalana was not only painful but also very shocking and devastating.

He described Oluwalana’s demise as a huge loss to the state government, the All Progressives Congress (APC) and his native Omuo-Ekiti, which he served conscientiously and diligently in his lifetime.

Fayemi also described the deceased as a thoroughbred journalist who achieved fame in his chosen profession by dint of hard-work before he continued his service to his state of origin through politics.

The governor, who noted that the late Oluwalana brought vibrancy to the Ekiti State APC through positive projection of the party’s activities between 2019 till he breathed his last, further described the Oluwalana as a resourceful member of the administration’s communications team whose contributions would continue to linger in the memories of his colleagues, admirers and the entire people of the state.
