A newly-appointed commissioner of the Federal Character Commission (FCC) from Kwara State, Mr. James Kolo, has died after a brief illness.
The FCC commissioner-designate reportedly died on Tuesday morning.
He was appointed member of the commission by President Muhammadu Buhari on April 28, 2020.
In his condolence message over the death, Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq commiserated with the Patigi community and the All Progressives Congress (APC) family over the sudden death of Mr. James Kolo.
The governor described Kolo as a loyal party man and a team player whose death Tuesday morning is a great loss to his family, the people of Patigi local government, and the entire state.
“We are devastated by the death of Mr. Kolo after recently falling ill. He was a staunch party man and a bridge builder who worked hard alongside other patriots for the success of the APC in the state,” the governor said in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye.
“We are consoled by the fact that he was a good man who got along with everybody that crossed his path. Many knew him for being a generous person. We commiserate with his family and pray the Almighty God to comfort them and rest his gentle soul,” he said.
