The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has sent his condolences to the family of former Senator, Gbenga Aluko, who died at the weekend.
Lawan also commiserated with the Government and people of Ekiti State over the sad incident.
The Senate President described the sudden death of Senator Gbenga Aluko as “shocking and painful.”
A statement issued on Monday by the media adviser to the Senate President, Ola Awoniyi, quoted Lawan as saying that Aluko, who was once a principal officer of the Senate, gave a good account of himself in the upper chamber between 1999 and 2003.
LEADERSHIP reports that at the time, Aluko was the only PDP Senator from the whole of South-West zone.
“Senator Gbenga Aluko served his fatherland diligently at the highest level of lawmaking. He also made bold imprints in private enterprise. He will be sorely missed,” Lawan said.
The Senate President prayed for God to comfort all his loved ones and grant them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
