Chairman of the South-West Governors' Forum and Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, has described late Afenifere leader, Senator Ayo Fasanmi, as a patriot whose positive exploits would not be forgotten in a hurry.
According to the forum's chairman, Pa Fasanmi, "one of the few men standing," personified integrity and exemplified atruism.
"Baba lives on because of his positive exploits and demonstrated capacity to lead a people. He bequeathed courage, planted love and displayed an insatiable quest for a just, equitable and egalitarian Nigeria.
"His thoughts were laced with candour and palpable emotional attachment for his people, the Yoruba nation and Nigeria at large.
"These thoughts were truly Nigeran and reflected in all ways, an inexorable passion for humanity.
"As a true son of the old Ondo State, Governors of both states and indeed, all South West governors, will commence talks with the immediate family to give this patriot, a befitting interment " he said.
