Lagos PDP Chairman Babatunde Osolanke Is Dead

The Caretaker Committee Chairman of Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is dead. He was said to have slumped at Ikeja Airport Hotel on Saturday, from where he was rushed to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja.

Sadly, he was confirmed dead by doctors.

According to Naija Newspaper, the late PDP boss was billed to hold a meeting with some chieftains of the party with a view to fixing a date for the party’s congress.

The congress, going by the initial arrangement, ought to have begun yesterday, but the reconciliation parley, which held at the residence of former deputy national chairman, Olabode George, which lasted till Saturday morning, forced the party faithful to reschedule the exercise.

The head, media and publicity committee to the party’s caretaker committee, Otunba Femi Careena said Chief Osolanke died while preparing to hold a scheduled meeting in respect of the rescheduled party’s congress..

“So we are in a mourning mood as I speak with you now, we are really in a mourning mood,” he said.

Reacting to the sad development, Bode George described Osolanke’s death as shocking, recalling that the deceased was at a meeting in his house last night and did his best to achieve reconciliation for the party in the state ahead of the PDP National Convention holding in Abuja.
