The message read in parts: “With heavy hearts, we commiserate with the Oyo State House of Assembly, Government and the good people of Oyo State on the sudden demise of the Speaker of the Oyo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Barr. Michael Adesina Adeyemo.
“However, we are consoled that the Speaker who was an epitome of humility and high intelligence lived an exemplary life. We are surely going to miss the Speaker who was patriotic and hardworking.”
They prayed God to grant members of the Oyo State House of Assembly, the good people of the state and his family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
“We also pray God to grant the soul of the departed Speaker eternal rest in His bosom until we meet to part no more,” the message added.
