The Speaker in a condolence message signed by his Special Assistant, Media, Ibrahim Sheriff on Thursday said the news of the demise of the local government lawmaker came as a rude shock, given his youthful age and his potentials of productively contributing to the development of Kwara state.

"Late Hon.

"I condole with the good people of Ekiti local government, member representing Ekiti local government - Hon. Ganiyu Abolarin Gabriel and particularly, the local government legislature over the colossal loss. We pray Almighty God forgive his shortcomings and grant his family, friends, political associates and the good people of Ekiti local government fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss", Danladi said.
