National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has mourned the late Tunde Braimoh.
Braimoh represented Kosofe Constituency II in the Lagos State House of Assembly.
Tinubu said he was shocked and distressed by the news of the lawmaker’s demise.
The party stalwart said the demise “rendered me and certainly all those who knew him and what he stood for, momentarily numb and speechless”.
“This is one death too many in such a short space of time. As mortals, we can only submit to the sovereignty of Almighty Allah”.
He noted that Braimoh was not just a political ally, but a dyed-in-the-wool progressive.
Tinubu described the deceased as an intelligent lawmaker, an astute local government chairman, a resourceful intellectual, and a loyal party man.
The Jagaban Borgu recalled that Braimoh played a significant role in the fight for the enthronement and sustenance of democracy in Nigeria.
He added that the former chairman of Kosofe Local Government played his part in ensuring good governance in Lagos State and brought panache to the political space in Nigeria.
Giving gratitude to God that he lived a purposeful life, Tinubu prayed that Allah shower mercy upon Braimoh, reward his good deeds and admit him to Aljanna Firdaus.
