- Victor Ayeni

THe Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-olu, on Wednesday, expressed grief over the death of the Treasurer of Caretaker Committee of the Lagos State chapter of the All Progressiv­es Congress, Mrs Sumbo Ajose.

Sanwo-olu, according to a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Gboyega Akosile, described the late Ajose as a loyal and committed democrat who played key roles in the party’s success.

The statement reads partly, “The death of the treasurer of our party, Sumbo Ajose, is a painful and big loss to me personally, Lagos APC, the deceased family and friends. I am saddened by the passage of this indefatiga­ble, devoted, loyal and committed democrat and team player who played remarkable roles in the success of our party during her lifetime.”

Ajose died at the age of 55 on Tuesday, July 13, in the United States, where she was receiving treatment for an undisclose­d ailment.
