Aregbesola mourns Iwo leader

Osun State Governor Rauf Aregbesola has described the death of a political leader in the state, Alhaji Lateef Katayeyanjue, as “a big loss”.

Katayeyanjue, a member of the House of Representatives in the Second Republic, died on Tuesday at the Ladoke Akintola University Teaching Hospital (LAUTHEC) in Osogbo, the state capital.

In a statement by his Director, Bureau of Communications and Strategy, Semiu Okanlawon, the governor said: “The exit of a leading light of progressive politics has robbed the state of a man of immense wisdom and political sagacity. Alhaji Katayeyanjue’s demise is for us a sad occurrence. He was a true religious, political and community leader, and a consistent progressive. He astutely served God and led a life worthy of emulation.”
