President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday commiserated with Osun State Government and members of the National Assembly on the passing away of Senator Isiaka Adeleke on Sunday.

In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the President also condoled with the family and friends of the late Senator, who was also a former Governor of Osun State.

The President said the deceased had passionately and relentlessly championed the cause of the less privileged and most vulnerable in the country.

He said the sudden loss of the legislator would create a gap in the hallowed red chamber of the National Assembly as the deceased had always epitomized unbridled patriotism, maturity and experience, especially with his recent interest in the protection of whistle blowers.

The President said Adeleke’s contribution to his state, as first elected governor, and the country would always be remembered by posterity.

He prayed that the Almighty God would grant the soul of the departed eternal rest, and comfort the family.
