The Lagos State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dr Dominic Adegbola, has died of COVID-19 related complications.

Naija News reports that his death was confirmed by the Publicity Secretary of the party, Taofik Gani.

Gani described the late PDP chairman as an exceptional politician who had deployed much of his hard earned money into philantropism.

He stated that Adegbola, who died on Wednesday, was a Medical Director of Santa Maria Hospital.

Dr Dominic was a grassroots politician from the days of Action Group.

He had held many political positions, notable amongst being State SDP officer; State Chairman of PAC; National Chairman of APN (Founded by late Jakande); State Chairman of Lagos PDP.

He had also contested lagos state governorship under the platform of APGA. He was the Jakande group candidate for the lagos west senatorial primary of the SDP, a contest between him and Bola Tinubu.

Gani said: “He stood for the development of lagos and he sure regrets that this lagos is not as he wished.

“He will be forever remembered in Lagos Politics. We condole with his family.

“All PDP flags In the state shall fly at halfmast. All PDP meetings at this time are to be prayers for him.

“Burial arrangements shall be as presented by the family.”
