The All Progressives Congress (APC) has commisserated with Gov. Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State and his family on the loss of their patriarch, Pa. Ademola Fashola.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday by its National Chairman, Chief Bisi Akande, the party said though the loss of a loved one, especially a worthy father like Pa Fashola, is always painful even at a ripe age, his exit is nothing but a glorious transition.

Late Pa Ademola Fashola
'A father who gave the people of Lagos state a first-rated Governor and a man of integrity and rare vision like His Excellency, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, must be appreciated and celebrated both in life and in death.

'This is why we believe that the death of Pa Fashola, despite the painful loss that it is, should also be used as an opportunity to celebrate his life, not just by his family but by all of us,' it said. APC described Pa Fashola as a humane, humble and unassuming man, whose sharp sense of humour never escaped anyone who met him in his life time, saying even being the father of an excellent Governor neither affected his humility nor dulled his sense of humour The party prayed that God will give Gov. Fashola and his family the fortitude to bear their great loss and also grant eternal rest to the soul of the departed. It urged Gov. Fashola to continue to fly his family flag, the Lagos flag and the Nigerian flag very high, saying this is one of the best tributes he can pay to his father.
