According to him, the death of the former governor is a major setback for the APC but however urged members to maintain their steadfastness in the face of the mourning.
“This is a rude shock to me. I was close to Otinba Akala and I am down as I send this condolence message. I know our moves during our polical sojourn in 2015 when I contested as his running mate in 2015. We were friends, brothers, and political associates.
“He was generous with pure heart. Akala committed the state resources to human and state development. Since he was appointed as a leader of our dear state, Akala has been making efforts to reposition our party. We all missed him,” he said.
