Bola Ahmed Tinubu Speaks On the Death of Governor Fashola’s Father

“He Died A Fulfilled And Happy Man. He Gave Lagos and Nigeria His Best” – Tinubu

While in the USA, he received the news of the death of Pa Ademola Fashola, the father of the Governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Fashola, with great shock and deep sadness.



His demise  even at the ripe age of 79 years is a hurtful one and we have indeed lost a true, honest, steadfast and dependable father. Pa Ademola Fashola, a man of integrity, was a father no one would want to lose at a time like this.


”My family and  I send our heartfelt condolences to Governor Fashola on this great loss’‘ Former Lagos State Governor said.

We must find solace and take comfort in the fact that Baba lived a fulfilled life and passed away with the knowledge that he gave his very best to his family, to Lagos State and Nigeria. There is no greater testimony to this than his son, Babatunde Fashola, the Governor of  Lagos who has given a new meaning to good governance and purposeful leadership.

Pa Fashola, Lagosians thank you. Nigeria thanks you for giving us a son like Babatunde Raji Fashola.

Governor Fashola must remain strong in the face of this great loss of  a dotting father, especially as all his other siblings look up to him for strength and courage. May Allah  (SWT) be his consolation and grant him peace at a time like this.
