Mallam Saliu Mustapha, who recognized the laudable roles the late former military governor played in the development and growth of the state, said the late elder statesman’s name would continue to linger in the minds of every Kwarans especially in the establishment of Kwara State Polytechnic, Kwara Library and Kwara Hotel.
In a statement issued from his media office to journalists in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital to commiserate with the people of Omu-Aran and the state in general, the APC Governorship Aspirant said he was shocked when he heard about the death of the former military governor, whose expertise and knowledge would be more needed towards ensuring hitch-free general polls in the country, next year.
Mallam Saliu Mustapha noted that the Nigeria’s political sphere has been thrown into mourning, pointing out that as an apologist, late Brigadier- General David Lasisi Bamigboye’s views were very much respected and recognized in Nigeria
