He also sympathized with the leadership of the PDP in the state, southwest and national saying his death would be quite painful to the party at this time when his political wisdom and advise are most needed.
He stated further that Adeyanju would be remembered for his grassroot politics which endeared him to the people. He described him as a loyal party man whose style of politics attracted to him many friends and a principled leader whose leadership cannot be disputed. Adeyanju, he said, applied his robust experience in all given administrative and political tasks.
