Chief Kayode Akintomide, a member of the State Executive Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ondo State is dead.
Kennedy Peretei, PDP publicity secretary in a statement on Thursday, described the death of Akintomide as shocking and devastating.
“Chief Akintomide, popularly known as Agbarapo was a party man to the chore, contributed in no small measure to building of our party in Ile-Oluji/Okeigbo Local Government in particular and Ondo State in general.
“In recognition of his sterling qualities, he was elected as Vice-Chairman of Ile-Oluji/Okeigbo. A very straight forward man, who made his position clear on any issue, be it party or Community affairs.
“He served as member of the State Caretaker Committee that midwifed the State Congress of August 4, 2020 that elected the present State Executive Committee of the PDP. As at the time of his demise, he was an Ex-Officio member of the State Executive Committee.
“We commiserate with members of his immediate family, PDP in Ile-Oluji/Okeigbo and the entire PDP family in the State. May God grant all of us the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss. We are sorely going to miss his robust contributions at meetings. Agbarapo, Adieu,” the statement read.
