“The death of the treasurer of our party, Sumbo Ajose, is a painful and big loss to me personally, Lagos APC, the deceased family, and friends. I am saddened by the passage of this indefatigable, devoted, loyal, and committed democrat and team player who played remarkable roles in the success of our party during her lifetime.
“She will be missed by her family, friends and the entire political class, particularly Lagos APC State Executive Committee, chieftains, and members of the party across the State,” Sanwo-Olu was quoted as saying.
The governor prayed that God would grant ”the soul of our beloved Sumbo Ajose eternal rest and comfort the immediate and political family of the deceased”.
