Senator Ganiyu Olanrewaju Solomon (GOS),has described late Bayo Oshinowo a.k.a Pepper as a charming politician with a peerless approach to the game of politics.
Reacting to the news of the sudden death of the 64 year old member of the Senate, representing Lagos East Senatorial district, GOS, himself a former Senator, said the death of the politician has left a vacuum in the country’s political sphere and Lagos politics in particular ” as we can not have another Pepper, whose approach to politics was evidently unique ”
He said Pepper was such a peculiar politician with a unique style and his politics devoid of hatred and unnecessary sentiment.
This he said, was the more reason the departed was able to hold elected political offices for as long as democracy thrived in the country till his unfortunate demise .
Describing the 4 term member of the Lagos House of Assembly as exceptionally loved by his constituents, GOS said ” no doubt, it will take a great deal to recover from this loss of a rare and calculative politician ”
He thus prayed that God gives every one that is hurt by the loss of the departed, the fortitude to bear same, concluding that his efforts at strengthening democracy both at the local and national level shall not go in vain.
