Governor Abiodun mourns Diya’s passage
The Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has commiserated with the government and people of Nigeria, as well as the military, friends and associates of the Chief of General Staff, Lt. Gen. Oladipo Diya on the passing away of soldier-statesman.
Penpushing reports that the Governor in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary Kunle Somorin described the departed army General as a seasoned administrator, gentleman and officer whose contributions to the development of the security architecture of Nigeria would remain indelible, adding that others carried on where he left off and Ogun State would not forget Diya’s role in its history.
The Governor recalled that the deceased who apart from being a former de facto Number two citizen in the country was also a military governor in Ogun State, adding that he previously served as Chief of Defence Staff.
‘He was courageous and daring, quick-witted and patriotic. Gen. Diya played frontline roles in the evolution and development of the state and his activities in the military, in part led to the eventual return and enthronement of democracy in the country In 1999’.
Penpushing further reports that Abiodun called on the family members, friends and associates of the departed leader who hailed from Odogbolu in the Ogun East Senatorial District of the State to take solace in the fact that the late soldier-statesman played the parts assigned to him by providence diligently, conscientiously and patriotically meritoriously.
The Governor while praying Almighty God to grant the late Diya’s soul eternal rest also enjoined Nigerians to emulate the good virtues that he left behind.
