Fasehun fought a good fight – Fayemi


The Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has mourned the death of the founder of the Oodua Peoples Congress, Dr Fredrick Fasehun, whom he described as a major pillar of its democratic struggles.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Yinka Oyebode, the governor said the nation had lost another strong pillar of our democratic struggles.
Fayemi said, “Dr Fasehun would do anything to defend the rights of his people against any act of tyranny and oppression.
“Dr Fasehun fought a good fight as a frontline leader in the struggle for the democracy we now enjoy. He challenged and encouraged many of the younger generation with the way he fought for democracy with all his energy and resources.
“We shall surely miss his amiable personality, simplicity, wisdom and courage.
“But we are encouraged by the fact that Dr Fasehun fought a good fight and left behind a good name and a legacy of selfless service that is worthy of emulation. This, we believe, should be a source of consolation to the children and the family.
“Our prayer is that God grant the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss and grant Baba eternal rest.”
