Reps Deputy Minority Whip Mourns Oniru

The Deputy Minority Whip of House of Representatives , Rt. Hon. Adekoya Adesegun Abdel-Majid , has expressed shock over the death of the Oniru of Iruland, Oba Idowu Abiodun Oniru, who died on Monday at the age of 82. 

In a statement by his Special Assistant on Media and Political Matters , Tayo N.O.K- Rufai, the Deputy Minority Whip described Oniru as a towering character whose footprints in traditional rulership will remain indelible.

Adekoya recalled how the late Oniru stood by him in 2001 at Kingdom of Saudi Arabia during the Hajj when he was sick. " As a paramount ruler, Kabiyesi abandoned his royal tent for his tent, took care of him just as he would have done for his children till he fully recuperated" the statement read.

He noted that wisdom and counsel which Oniru rendered to those who encountered him during his reign were priceless.

“I share in the grief of the people of Iruland over the demise of this outstanding monarch, but I am more delighted about the fact that Oba Oniru led an impactful lifetime," Adekoya said.

The  lawmaker condoled with the indigenes and residents of Iruland over the demise of the monarch and implored family and associates of the late revered traditional ruler to take solace in the fact that Oba Oniru lived a fulfilled life.

Adekoya  prayed for the soul of Oba Oniru to find eternal rest among the saints.
