Adebayo Salami, a former Senator, has passed on.
Salami reportedly died in the United States on Thursday.
The cause of his death, whether natural or an illness, is unknown.
Salami was an All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain in Osun State.
He represented Osun Central Senatorial District on the Alliance for Democracy (AD) platform at the inception of the fourth republic in 1999.
Governor Adegboyega Oyetola has expressed sadness.
Oyetola noted that he was sad about the demise of Salami, the Baba Adinni of Osogbo.
“This is a huge loss, not only to his family and friends, but to the people of Osogbo and Osun at large. My prayers and thoughts are with his family and the Muslim community in Osun.
“As we mourn Baba Adinni’s demise, I pray Almighty Allah to overlook his shortcomings, grant him a place in Aljannah Firdaus, and give the family and all those who mourn his demise the strength to bear this loss”, he said.
