Kwara Loses 2 Former Reps In 48hrs

Date: 2023-11-30

Two former federal lawmakers, who represented Kwara State at the House of Representatives, Abdulyekeen Sidiq Alajagusi and Yinusa Yahya have died.

Alajagusi, who was elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from his sick bed to represent Asa/Ilorin West federal seat in 2019 but never recovered from his protracted illness. He died on Monday in Ilorin, the state capital.

Late Yahya, a two-time House of Representatives member for Moro/Edu/Patigi, was the Chairman, House Committee on Works, but lost his senatorial contest to former Governor of Kwara State, Alhaji Shaba Lafiaji who won the PDP primary election held in Bode Saadu in 2007.

The deceased, a former chairman of the board of Kwara State Polytechnic, Ilọrin, also later joined the APC, the party he was until his death on Tuesday.

In his condolence messages on Wednesday, Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq expressed sadness over the death of the two former federal lawmakers.

While the Governor described Alajagusi as a prominent voice in the ‘Otoge’ struggle, he said “Bulldozer”, as Yahya was fondly called, was a great political strategist with appreciable goodwill in not just Edu, his local government of origin, but across the state.

The Governor asks Allah to grant the two of them Al-jannah Firdaus and to ease the affairs of their families.
