Ashiru's Death: Painful Loss, Amosun
Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has described the death of
former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Olugbenga Ashiru at the age
of 66 years as very painful and a personal loss.
In a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Mrs
Olufunmilayo Wakama, Amosun described the death of Ashiru as a great loss
to him, Ogun State, where he hailed from and the nation as a whole.
The governor noted that the death of Ashiru occurred at a time when his
wealth of experience in international diplomacy would have been most
needed in shoring up the nation's image in the face of the insurgency that
it is presently confronted with.
“He was a career diplomat, who served the nation meritoriously in several
capacities. He was our pride in the diplomatic circle as well as an
outstanding and illustrious son of Ogun State, who we were proud of. He
would be sorely missed,” the governor said.
He prayed almighty God to grant his soul rest and give his family and
relatives the fortitude to bear the great loss.
