Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress(APC) Captain Sunday Adebomi has described the late speaker of the Ekiti State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Funminiyi Afuye as a political icon who used his position to stabilise politics in Ekiti
Adebomi, a former Governorship aspirant in Ekiti State while commisersting with the government and people of Ekiti State over the death of the foremost lawmaker also prayed for the reposed of the deceased soul .
He noted that Ekiti Assembly, under the leadership of late Afuye had ensured that the State got the best legislations without necessarily compromising the integrity of the third arm of government.
” The death of the Speaker of the Ekiti State House of Assembly Rt. Hon Funminiyi Afuye came to me as a rude shock .The deceased was a prominent member of the Progressives family ,and one of the few activists who fought for the enthronement of the democracy in Nigeria..
” Late Afuye ,as the Speaker of the House ensured that Ekiti got best legislations on gender and child’s rights .It is instructive to note that late Afuye did not allow unnecessary political muscle flexing in the assembly with the Executive as the house enjoyed smooth ,cordial and productive relationship “
Adebomi therefore prayed that God Almighty sound give the family the fortitude to bear the huge loss .
