Mr Peter Obi, the 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, has mourned the death of Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Lekan Balogun, Alli Okunmade II.

Obi said Balogun’s death has created a painful void to Ibadanland and the entire Nigeria.

The Olubadan who died a few days ago has been buried in line with Muslim rites.

Posting on X, Obi wrote: “I am saddened by the reports of the passing on of the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Lekan Balogun, Alli Okunmade II.

“He was a true Nigerian who remained committed to building a better nation for all Nigerians.

“He served the nation as a legislator and made immense contributions to the development of the nation. His death has created a painful void, not just in Ibadanland, but in the entire nation.

“I sincerely condole with the entire Balogun family, the government and the people of Ibadan land and Oyo State over this sad loss, while praying God to grant them, and all of us who mourn him, the fortitude to bear this sad irreplaceable loss.”
