Alao Aakala was a practical Samaritan – Baptist Convention

Alao-Akala revalidates APC membership, says party will reclaim Oyo in 2023

) The Nigerian Baptist Convention has described the late Chief Adebayo Alao-Akala, former Governor of Oyo State, as a humble, generous, caring, influential, God-fearing man and an administrator of excellence.

The Convention, in a statement by its Public Relations Officer, Mr Eben Durodola, said that Alao-Akala lived a fulfilled relational life and achieved much in the areas of politics, charity, personal influence, missions and helping others.

“The news of the death of the former Governor of Oyo State, Chief Adebayo Alao-Akala, came as a shock and devastation.

“He was a practical ‘Samaritan’ of our generation.

“Late Alao-Akala will be remembered for his doggedness and the zeal he exhibited toward the spread and expansion of the gospel of Jesus Christ, during his lifetime.

“He assisted many people to rise in life and was well-loved by his people and Nigeria at large.

“The Nigerian Baptist Convention will miss a great gem, philanthropist, and a very important personality,” Durodola said.

According to him, the President of Nigerian Baptist Convention and the entire Baptist Family in Africa do commiserate with the Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde.

“We also commiserate with the people of Ogbomoso, Oyo State, South/West Zone and the entire country and pray that God will console the family and everybody he left behind,” he said.
