Ogun State Deputy Governor, Engr. Noimot Salako-Oyedele has described late Chief Dayo Abatan, as a man of integrity, who was passionate at improving the lives of people around him.

Engr. Salako-Oyedele made this known at the Christian Wake-keep for the deceased, who was a member of the State Advisory Council of the Governor, held at St. Mattiah’s Anglican Church field, Ijeun-Titun, Abeokuta, saying he would be greatly missed for his fatherly guidance.

"I am honoured to be here today to be able to say what baba meant to us. He was someone who His Excellency turned to for advice; we last saw him at the town hall meeting, where he dished out words of advice to His Excellency", she stated.

She prayed that Almighty God would give both biological and political children of the late politician the fortitude to bear the loss, urging them to continue with the legacies of their father.

The Deputy Governor used the opportunity to assure residents of Abeokuta and its environs that the issue of acute shortage of water supply would be a thing of the past, as all hands were on deck to ensure adequate water supply to all parts of the State.

In his exhortation, Venerable Peter Soetan of St. Mary Anglican Church, Ijaye, Egba Diocese, described the late politician as a lover of all, who lived a life worthy of emulation, urging politicians to live up to their electioneering promises by providing basic amenities for the people. 

The cleric who noted that death was inevitable, no matter the riches acquired, urged people to desist from telling lies.

Giving tributes on behalf of his children, Mrs. Omololu Osiyemi, said her late father was a disciplinarian, who loved his children and would go all out to help others, saying his involvement in politics was borne out of his compassion for others.

Also speaking, a member of Ijeun-Titun Development Association, Alhaji Dauda Afuape, said the late Chief contributed immensely to the development of the community, adding that he was responsible, accommodating and had impacted so many lives.

Remarking on behalf of Egba Chiefs, Deacon Samuel Adebo, noted that his numerous contributions towards the progress of Ijeun and Egba at large would not be forgotten in a hurry.

Late Chief Adedayo Abatan passed away in December, at the age of 80 years.
