Oyetola in condolence messages issued on Saturday by his Chief Press Secretary, Ismail Omipidan, sympathised with the families of the bereaved and Governments of Sokoto and Oyo states.
“On behalf of the Government and people of the State of Osun, I condole with my colleagues, Rt. Hon. Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto and Seyi Makinde of Oyo State over the death of two serving commissioners in their respective cabinets. I also commiserate with the families, friends and associates of the deceased.
“Their sudden and unfortunate death has robbed their states of the services of patriotic and hard-working public servants,” Oyetola said.

He prayed God to grant the souls of the deceased eternal rest and comfort their governors, families and loved ones.
