I find it hard to announce the death of our Leader, Mentor and a Political Juggernaut, Hon. Tunde Braimoh.
As if the breath slowly slips off my lips. I cannot but think over and over, doubt my hearings. Is it really true that my leader is gone?
Kosofe Politics without you is a cold world of ice, freezing me to death like fish stark naked.
I can’t but doubt my hearing, my breath seizes.
Your demise is not just a lonely death but a string that rubs on many as victims. As a bearer of law, you stood as the voice of the voiceless. Many are living testimonies to your life touching impacts.
Your leadership in Kosofe exemplifies the dexterity of your seasoned administrative prowess and uncommon resourcefulness in bringing good governance to the people at the grassroot.
Your hands are always outstretched to the needy and the poor. Constantly your doors are flooded by beneficiaries of your flowing hands of honey.
Every eyes filled with sadness and sorrow were receiving succor with the cheerfulness of your face .
We love you but the Almighty loves you more than we do.
Rest in Peace.
Death is a bridge. All of us must cross over.
ADIEU BIG DADDY!!!
