The Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Dr Kayode Fayemi, has
commiserated with the family of the late ace broadcaster, Chief Lasisi
Adeyemi, who passed on Wednesday, at a Lagos hospital.
The Minister, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Mr Yinka
Oyebode, said the death of the late broadcaster, who had a unique mastery
of the Yoruba language and events management, was sad and disheartening.
Dr Fayemi, who recalled his last moment with the deceased, when he paid him
a visit on his hospital bed in Lagos, earlier in the week, said the late
Chief Adeyemi demonstrated courage and fought the ailment gallantly.
“The news of Chief Adeyemi’s demise was quite saddening. We had prayed and
hope that he would pull through the illness. But we cannot question God,
hence we submit to His total wish.” Fayemi said.
The Minister described the late Adeyemi as a “hugely talented broadcaster
and master of ceremony, a diligent professional with a remarkably amiable
character. Indeed , he was an illustrious son of Ekiti”
He added that the ace broadcaster would be greatly missed for his immense
contributions to the socio-cultural development of our dear Ekiti State.
Fayemi urged the children and the entire family of the deceased to be
consoled by the good name he left behind as well as the positive impact he
made in his chosen profession.
“While I join thousands of Chief Adeyemi’s fans to mourn his death, my prayer
is that God will keep and comfort his family and grant them the fortitude
to bear the irreparable loss.”, the statement added.
