Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun and his Ondo State counterpart, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu, on Monday, paid a condolence visit on the family of the late Director General of the Development Agenda for Western Nigeria, DAWN Commission, Mr. Dipo Famakinwa, in Lagos.
During the visit, the governors took turns to speak glowingly of the late Famakinwa describing him as someone who was hardworking and passionate about the development of the Southwest geopolitical zone of Nigeria.
Governor Amosun narrated how he received news of the death of Famakinwa with shock.
The Ogun State governor also spoke of how much the late DG of DAWN Commission would be missed by him and his other brother governors in the South west geopolitical zone.
Governor Amosun added that it was in the honour of the late Famakinwa that the governors of the Southwest decided to postpone a meeting earlier scheduled for Abeokuta, on Monday.
Governor Amosun commiserated with the wife and children left behind by the late Famakinwa.
Gov Akeredolu sympathized with the wife of the deceased.
He said: “He was committed to his work as DG of DAWN. No doubt the south west has lost one of her compatriots. He was undoubtedly committed to south west course.
“God will grant him eternal rest and give the family the fortitude and strength to bear this irreparable loss.
“On behalf of the people of Ondo state and my family, we express our sincere commiseration.”
The governors also signed the condolence register.
