Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN received with disbelief and heavy heart, the sad news of the demise of Alhaji Fawehinmi, Chairman, Ondo state Mulsim Welfare Board and Co-Chairman religious Thanksgiving sub -Committee of his 2nd term inauguration. He died yesterday in the United States of America after a brief illness.
His death is no doubt a huge loss to the family and to Ondo State Government which he served diligently and meritoriously until the bell sounded.
Khaleel Fawehinmi was not just the Seriki Adinni Musulumi of Ondo State, he was a good human being and a great patriot who dedicated totally his life and times to the best service of his community and our state as a whole.
Governor Akeredolu particularly views this death as a personal loss of a completely loyal and reliable friend of over 25 years, It is the loss of the warmth of a true brother and supporter whose devotion and commitment to Akeredolu’s personal and public aspirations was first class and total.
Seriki’s death, coming not long after the demise of his illustrious wife, no doubt bears a huge burden of grief on the immediate family.
Governor Akeredolu, on behalf of the Government and people of Ondo state therefore commiserates with the immediate family, Ondo community and the entire muslim community in the state. He prays Almighty Allah forgives the deceased of all his trespasses and grant him Aljannah Firdaus.
