The Oyo State Government and the ancient town of Oyo was thrown into mourning today over the sudden death of Rt. Hon. Kehinde Ayoola. Until his demise, he was the Oyo State Commissioner for Environment and Natural Resources.
The former Speaker of the Oyo State House of Assembly during the reign of late Governor Lam Adesina was reportedly dead after a brief illness.
The Oyo-born politician represented Oyo East/Oyo West State Constituency between 1999 to 2003 under the Alliance for Democracy (AD).
He also servered as the DG of the Seyi Makinde Campaign Organization under the SDP in 2015.
In 2019, he was the Deputy DG of the Omituntun Campaign Organization that ushered in the present administration in Oyo State.
Reacting to the sad news by one of one of his colleagues, the Oyo State Commissioner for Information & Mass Mobilization, Dr. Wasiu Olatunbosun in an emotion laden voice said, “it is true. We just lost him.”
Rt. Hon. Ayoola will be remembered for his altruistic service to Oyo State since his emergence on the political turf in 1999.
