Penpushing reports that, the Publicity Secretary of the party, Taofik Gani made this known in a statement, but could not ascertain the cause of death of the senior medical practitioner, who he described as an exceptional politician, and deployed much of his hard-earned money into philanthropy.

“He was the Medical Director of Santa Maria Hospital. Dr Dominic was a grassroots politician from the days of Action Group. He had held many political positions, including, State SDP officer; State Chairman of PAC; National Chairman of APN (Founded by late Lateef Jakande); State Chairman of Lagos PDP.

“He had also contested Lagos state governorship on the platform of APGA. He was the candidate of the Jakande group for the Lagos West senatorial primary of the SDP, a contest between him and Sen. Bola Tinubu.”

Penpushing further reports that, the scribe described the deceased as a martyr, adding that  he was dogged about the emancipation of the oppressed, pauperised, and the less-privileged, and stood for the development of Lagos state.

“He will be forever remembered in Lagos politics. We condole with his family. All PDP flags in the state shall fly at half-mast. All PDP meetings at this time are to be prayers for him.Burial arrangements shall be as presented by the family,” he added.
