Former South-West Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr Eddy Olafeso has described the death of former Minority Leader of the Ondo State House of Assembly, Hon. Akpoebi Lubi, as a painful and hard one to take.

Starnews Nigeria reports that Lubi, a former member of the Ondo State House of Assembly representing Ese-Odo State Constituency died earlier today in a fatal car accident around Owena, a village before Akure, Ondo State.

The former Lawmaker was travelling to Akure from his Arogbo home town in Ese Odo Local Government Area of Ondo State.

While reacting on social media, Olafesa wrote: “Lubi, your death diminished me. You gave your all to our collective dreams. Fare thee well my blood brother. I am confused right now.”

Late Lubi was the only PDP lawmaker elected to the Assembly in 2011. Lubi also served as Caretaker Chairman of Ese-Odo Local Government and was later appointed Special Assistant to Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu on Niger Delta Affairs, a position he resigned and returned thereafter to his home party, the PDP.

In a statement by Wande Ajayi, Olafeso’s Media Aide, the PDP chieftain said until his death, late Lubi remained his firm supporter and will be sorely missed for his passion, commitment and great love for his Arogbo-Ijaw clan.
