The late Hon. Funminiyi Afuye, Speaker of the Ekiti State House of Assembly, was regarded as one of the best State Assembly Speakers in the nation, according to Hon. Adebo Ogundoyin, Speaker of the Oyo State House of Assembly.
In a statement following the death of the Speaker, Hon Ogundoyin expressed his shock upon learning of Hon Afuye’s unexpected passing.
He seized the opportunity to express his condolences to the Ekiti State House of Assembly, the Ekiti State Government, and the whole Ekiti State populace following the passing of their Speaker.
Following a cardiac arrest, Hon Afuye allegedly passed on Wednesday night at the Ekiti State Teaching Hospital in Ado Ekiti.
Oyo Speaker sent its condolences for the terrible event with the Nigerian Conference of Speakers.
He asked God to protect his entire family and to grant the deceased’s family the strength to deal with the loss.
” The death of Hon Funminiyi Afuye was shocking. He was one of my closest friends in the Conference of Speakers and i have benefitted immensely from his wealth of experience as a one time Commissioner in Ekiti State, and two time member of the State Assembly. I will surely miss him. All of us will miss his political experience and elderly dispositions to affairs. May God rest his soul eternally. “
