The Lagos State PDP Chairman, Dr. Adegbola Dominic has just died of covid 19 related ailments, Information Nigeria understands.
The Lagos PDP publicity secretary, Taofik Gani described his death “as painful as he was concerned about the emancipation of the oppressed, pauperized and less privileged.
“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 half-mast. All PDP meetings at this time are to be prayers for him. Burial arrangements shall be as presented by the family,” Gani said.
Adegbola Dominic on Saturday, September 29, 2018, emerged as the new Lagos State Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to replace Mr. Moshood Salvador, who had defected to APC.
He, however, held this position until the day of his death.
