Nigeria: Lagos PDP Secretary, Shodipe, Is Dead

29 July 2021

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State has announced the death of its Secretary, Prince Muiz Shodipe.

The state PDP Publicity Secretary, Taofik Gani, who noted that Shodipe died in the early hours of yesterday, said the sudden loss of Shodipe was one death too much for the party.

According to Gani, "The party fears that the death of the dogged secretary at this time is a big blow which may slow down the reengineering of the party in the state.

"It, however, submits to the will of God just as the party prays for the soul of the departed to rest in the bosom of the Lord."

He prayed for the family to have the fortitude to bear the monumental loss.

The spokesman said the party had directed all its flags in the state to be flown at half-mast and special prayers be held for the departed at all its meetings statewide.

Gani further announced that Service of Songs will hold today for Shodipe at No 12, Akinyele Street, Aguda, Surulere by 4 to 6 p.m., while interment will hold on Friday at Oke-Suna Cemetery, Lagos Island.
