Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq has commiserated with the family of renowned mass communication teacher and former Vice Chancellor of Adeleke University Prof. Samuel Ekundayo Alao who died on Saturday at the age of 72.
The statement signed on behalf of the governor by his Chief Press Secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye, reads:
“On behalf of the people and government of Kwara State, His Excellency commiserates with the people of Oke Oyi in Ilorin East local government area, the entire academic community and the immediate family of Prof. Alao who passed on to glory today. Inasmuch as it is always painful to lose scholars and elders of the hue of Prof. Alao, we take solace in the fact that he left great footprints in the sand of time.
“His death is a great loss to the academic community and the state as a whole. The Governor prays the Almighty God to give the family the fortitude to bear the loss and repose his soul.”
