President Buhari's special assistant dies

The late Ayodele Adu
Adu died on Friday, August 12, 2016
Details of his death were still sketchy at the time of this report, but a condolence message released by Olayinka Oyebode, a special assistant on media to Dr Kayode Fayemi, the minister of Solid Minerals Development, confirmed the incident.
Fayemi condoned with the family of the deceased expressing shock and sadness about the incident.
The late Adu served on the board of Fountain Investment Company Limited of the Ekiti state government while Fayemi was governor of the state.
Fayemi described the death of Adu as a personal loss to him and a major loss to the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
He said Adu’s death has robbed the APC, Ekiti state chapter of another prominent member, and compounded its grief, especially coming closely on the heels of the death of Chief Ibidapo Awojolu and Alhaji Femi Ganiyu Adeyemi.
“May God grant him eternal rest and give his family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss,” the message read.
Sources say the late Adu, who hailed from Omuo Ekiti, Ekiti state, died in India, after a prolonged illness.
He has been described as highly educated and skilled.
He was an investment banker and a major stakeholder in the banking industry.
