Eddy Olafeso Mourns Ex Ondo Lawmaker, Akpoebi Lubi
Former South West Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Eddy Olafeso has described the death of former Minority Leader of the Ondo State, Hon. Akpoebi Lubi, as a painful and hard one to take.
Lubi, a former member of the Ondo State House of Assembly representing Ese-Odo State Constituency, Akpoebi Lubi, died earlier today in a fatal car crash around Owena, a village before Akure, Ondo State while returning from his Arogbo home town in Ese Odo Local Government area of Ondo State.
“Lubi, your death diminished me. You gave your all to our collective dreams. Fare thee well my blood brother. I am confused right now.” Olafeso said.
Late Lubi was the only PDP lawmaker elected to the Assembly in 2011. Lubi also served as Caretaker Chairman of Ese-Odo Local Government and was later appointed Special Assistant to Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu on Niger Delta Affairs, a position he resigned and returned to his home Party, the PDP.
Hon. Lubi Akpoebi, until his death, remained a firm supporter of Dr. Olafeso and will be sorely missed for his passion, commitment and great love for his Arogbo-Ijaw clan.
May he find peace with his Lord.
