Lagos State Governor, Mr Babatunde Fashola (SAN) Wednesday expressed deep sadness and heartfelt condolences over the passing on of former Vice President and one-time military administrator of Lagos and Ondo States, Vice Admiral Mike Okahi Akhigbe.

In a letter of condolence to the family of the deceased, Governor Fashola described Vice Admiral Akhigbe as a man about whom it could be said was a true patriot as he served the nation with distinction in several important capacities.

“I can state without equivocation that his contribution to the development of Lagos State and the development of Nigeria as a whole cannot be quantified”, the Governor stressed.

While praying for the repose of the soul of the departed, Governor Fashola declared: “On behalf of my wife, Dame Emmanuella, the Government and people of Lagos State, please accept my condolences and be assured that we are in prayers with you and members of your family”.
