In a statement by the Director of Communications and Strategy, Mr. Semiu Okanlawon, the governor said that Agagu’s death was a big loss to both his home state, Ondo, and the nation.
Aregbesola said the former governor had made his mark as a schorlar before venturing into politics.
According to him, Agagu also displayed knowledge, versatility and ingenuity in the art and dynamics of politics.
According to Aregbesola: “He was a lecturer, one time Minister of Aviation and then Governor of Ondo State. There is no gainsaying the fact that Agagu had contributed his quota to the nation’s development.
“Yet I say it with all sense of modesty that the late Dr. Agagu came, saw, and left fulfilled. Doubtless, he made his mark and left his footprint on the sand of history as a leader of men, who also impacted positively on his people, state and country at large.
“On behalf of myself and the people of the State of Osun State, I offer our condolences to the entire family (immediate and extended) of Dr. Olusegun Agagu, the Governor, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko and people of Ondo State. We pray that Almighty God repose his soul in paradise.”
