Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has said that former military administrator of the state, General Adetunji Idowu Olurin is one of the leaders who laid the foundation for the development of the State.

Makinde made this disclosure on Saturday.

Our correspondent gathered that news of the death of the former military administrator was announced in the early hours of Saturday.

Olurin, Saga Gist recalls is one of the allies of former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Makinde while speaking on the death of the Ilaro general, described his death as painful.

Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Taiwo Adisa who spoke on behalf of the governor, used the opportunity to commiserate with the Governor of Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun, the people of the state and the Olurin family.

Adisa in the statement on Saturday noted that Olurin died at a time his wealth of his experience was needed.

He said that Olurin’s contributions cannot be forgotten in a hurry.

He added that he and other past Governors laid the foundation for the development of the state which made it gain its slogan, pacesetter.

“It is sunset for another great man and one of the first set of leaders that providence gave to Oyo State at its earliest stage.

“Through the efforts and contributions of Gen. Olurin and other leaders, the foundation for the shaping of the Pacesetter State, which has become a first among equals, was successfully laid.

“General Olurin’s death at this time when his wealth of experience in leadership can be of immense help to the current crop of leaders is painful.

“But since the Holy Bible reckons that man has been given 70 years and he lived beyond the granted three scores and ten, we can only celebrate the good life General Olurin lived and the great contributions he made to our dear State.

“I commiserate with the entire Olurin family of Ilaro and the government and people of Ogun State and pray to God to grant them the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.”
