Sanyaolu passed away when most needed - Lagos APC chairman

Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, Pastor Cornelius Ojelabi, has stated that the party's former youth leader, Omotayo Sanyaolu passed on when his experience was very much needed for the 2023 general elections.

Sanyaolu lost his life in a car crash on Friday, July 29, 2022.

He was the Senior Special Assistant on Tertiary Education, Youth and Student Affairs to Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

According to Ojelabi, Sanyaolu was a committed member of the APC, and he will be greatly missed.

“It happened when Sanyaolu’s wealth of experience regarding youth mobilisation would have been at the service of the APC as it prepares for the forthcoming 2023 general election.

“We received the news of the sudden death of Sanyaolu with utmost shock and dismay.

“What another terrible loss to the APC family and the youth in general.

“Tayo was a very vibrant and reliable youth leader, whom we had expected would mobilise our youths to ensure that our party wins in the forthcoming 2023 general election.

“The Lagos APC takes solace in the fact that Omotayo lived a purposeful life and left his footprints on the sands of time.

“He contributed massively to the successes of the party in the state in every assignment he was given while alive.

“His track records will be difficult for anyone to erase or be forgotten in the history of Lagos APC as the former youth leader of the party.

“It was a position he served with zeal and utmost importance which contributed to many wins for us,” he said.
