Michael Adeyemo, speaker of the Oyo state house of assembly, is dead.

Adeyemo died at Jericho General Hospital in Ibadan, the state capital, on Friday.

According to TVC News, the All Progressives Congress (APC) lawmaker died of a heart attack.

Adeyemo, who represented Ibarapa East local government area, emerged speaker of Oyo assembly in 2015.

In his acceptance speech, Adeyemo had urged his colleagues to “let partisanship give way to patriotism”.

He had said: “We must be prepared to sacrifice in the face of financial and economic crises as have been witnessed.”

Adeyemo bagged a degree in education management from the University of Port Harcourt and a law degree from the University of Ibadan.

A lawyer before joining politics in 2007, Adeyemo served as the deputy chief whip of the Oyo house in the seventh assembly.

The late lawmaker was a member of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) and International Bar Association (IBA).

    I hope all these politicians should learn that life is too short, its vanity upon vanity.
    RIP to him though.
