“I commiserate with the widow of late Alhaji Aminu Adisa Logun, his immediate family, the Ilorin Emirate, government and people of Kwara State especially, His Excellency, Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq over the great loss.
“Late Aminu Logun’s simplicity, honesty, humility and excellence will remain evergreen in our memories.
