The Ekiti Council of Traditional Rulers has received, with rude shock, the sad news of the passage of His Excellency, Otunba Adebisi Adegboyega Egbeyemi, the immediate past Deputy Governor of Ekiti on March 18, 2023 after a brief illness.
Otunba Egbeyemi was a distinguished indigene of Ekiti who deeply respected the traditional institution and worked for its dignity and sustainability.
The Council deeply condoles his immediate family, the Ewi of Ado-Ekiti,the entire people of Ado-Ekiti,his immediate past boss and Ekiti State Government on the demise of this illustrious and industrious Ekiti son.
Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi as the Deputy Governor was a towering figure in Ekiti political arena during his time and will be fondly remembered for his positive role in the development of Ekiti State.
The Council particularly recalls, with fondness, his many interventions in chieftaincy related crises which has led to peaceful coexistence among different communities in Ekiti State.
The Council prays God to grant the family, Ado-Ekiti and all his loved ones the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.
May his gentle soul rest in peace.
