In a condolence letter to Speaker Obasa, Tinubu said he was shocked and distressed by the news of Buraimoh's death.

"Indeed, it was one piece of news that rendered me and certainly all those who knew him and what he stood for, momentarily numb and speechless.

"This is one death too many in such a short space of time.

"As mortals, we can only submit to the sovereignty of Almighty Allah.

"Hon. Braimoh was not just a political ally, he was a dyed-in-the-wool progressive.

"He devoted his talents, resources, and life to the service and wellbeing of not only the people of Kosofe but Lagosians at large."
