Abatan An Incorruptible Politician - Associates

Late Dayo Abatan

ABEOKUTA - Late Dayo Abatan has been described as an incorruptible politician who dedicated his life to humanitarian service and community development.

Political associates who besieged the deceased's residence to sympathize with the family made this assertion while mourning  the deceased at his residence  in Obafemi Owode local government of Ogun State. 

Until his demise, Abatan  was a member of the newly inaugurated Governors' Elders Advisory Council inaugurated by the State governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun.

Also,  political associates of the deceased, led by an elder statesman, Chief Michael Joda in high state of sobriety stressed that the sudden departure of Abatan was synonymous to the fall of great tree in the tick forest.

Tracing the historical background of Abatan who died at 80, Joda stressed that he fought doggedly for late MKO Abiola's presidential ambition before the military turn the table.

The elder statesman called on youths to imitate the political ideology of Abatan.

In his condolence message, PDP Secretary in the State, Chief Semiu Sodipo equally  described Abatan as a political mobiliser who believed in the supremacy of the party.

Sodipo argued that, Adatan's intention before his death was to see youths rule Nigeria.

"All of us here, we are his products. He was selfless and very rare person to come about. He was a partyman, party organiser who believed the party must take the right place. If we must imbibe his political ideals, that is the way to go," Sodipo said.
