The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Lagos State Council has described the death of Pa Lamidi Adams, the father of Aare Gani Adams, the Aare Ona kakanfo of Yoruba Land as an irreparable loss to the nation.
The man died at the age of 80 on Sunday in Lagos after a brief illness at a private hospital.
In a statement signed by the Chairman of the Lagos NUJ and secretary, Dr Qasim Akinreti and Alfred Odifa respectively, the Union said to Aare Adams that : “With heavy heart and deep sense of loss, the Lagos NUJ symphatizes with you on the death of your father.
“His death is indeed a great loss to the family and the entire Nation, most especially now that you need him most. We take solace in the fact that that wherever he is, he will be proud of you as the Aare Ona Kakanfo of the entire Yoruba race.
“We pray that God in his infinite mercies will grant the entire family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss”.
