The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has expressed profound sadness over the passing of Princess Adenrele Adeniran-Ogunsanya, former Secretary to the Lagos State Government and first daughter of the foremost politician, late Chief Adeniran Ogunsanya.
He said the death of Princess Adeniran-Ogunsanya was a huge loss to the people of Ikorodu in particular and the entire state.
In a condolence statement on Tuesday by his Media Office signed by Tunde Rahman, Asiwaju Tinubu, who is also a former Lagos State Governor, said: “I received the news of the passing of former Secretary to the Lagos State Government, Princess Adenrele Adeniran-Ogunsanya, with deep sadness.
“Her death at this time is particularly tragic because only about a week ago when I glimpsed her, she looked strong and full of life. Princess Adenrele was the first daughter of late elder statesman and prominent politician, Chief Adeniran Ogunsanya, from Ikorodu. She bore the family name with grace and charm.
“Princess Ogunsanya made considerable contributions to the growth and development of Lagos. As Secretary to the State Government in the first term of Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola SAN, she discharged herself well. She left no one in doubt about her commitment to an efficient, functional and progressive Lagos.
“The people of Lagos State, particularly the Ikorodu community have lost a worthy daughter. I know she would never be forgotten in a hurry.
“My condolences to the Adeniran Ogunsanya family, Governor Babajide Sanwo-olu, the people of Ikorodu and Lagos State. I pray that her soul find eternal rest. Amin.”
