The Peoples Democratic Party in Lagos State on Wednesday said the death of its Secretary, Prince Muiz Shodipe, might slow down the re-engineering of the party in the state.
The Publicity Secretary of the party, Taofik Gani, noted that Shodipe died in the early hours of Wednesday.
In a statement, Gani said the sudden loss of Shodipe was one death too much for the party.
Gani said: “The party fears that the death of the dogged Secretary at this time is a big blow which may slow the reengineering of the Party in the state.
“It, however, submits to the will of God just as it prays for the soul of the departed to enjoy the bosom of the Lord.”
Gani prayed for the family to have the fortitude to bear the monumental loss.
The spokesman said the party had directed all her flags all over the state to be flown at half mast and special prayers be held for the departed at all her meetings statewide.
