The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party for Irewole/Isokan/Ayedaade Federal Constituency, in Osun state in the 2023 general election, Sola Arabambi, has died.
An aide to the late Arabambi, who pleaded anonymity, confirmed the development, saying his principal died on Saturday during a brief illness.
In a release by his Media Office, the ex-governorship aspirant on the platform of the PDP in Osun State, Prince Dotun Babayemi, said Arabambi’s death was hurtful, describing him as a man who was sincere about his desires to serve his people.
The statement read in part, “Of a truth, the news of Sola’s death came to me as a rude shock. He was a man who was service-driven. He touched many lives within his reach and as such, his contributions cannot be forgotten.”
While condoling the family, party and the people of the federal constituency over the death, Babayemi prayed for the repose of the deceased and the fortitude to bear his loss.
