Lanre Rasak, a Lagos State All Progressive Congress (APC) chieftain and former Commissioner of Public Transportation is dead. Lanre Rasak passed away at Reddington Hospital, Lagos after a brief illness at age of 74.
The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu announced the sad news in a tweet.
Sanwo-Olu described Razak’s death as a rude shock, describing him as a great politician, a strong party man, and an advocate of masses oriented programmes.
“I am saddened by the death of one of our political leaders in Lagos APC, Chief Lanre Razak. He was a loyal party man and committed democrat, with a deep understanding of the state’s political landscape,” the Governor said.
“He was an extremely loyal politician, who did his best for our party, the All Progressives Congress. Chief Lanre Razak served his people and Lagos State passionately as Chairman of Epe Local Government Area and Commissioner of Public Transportation.
“He brought a lot of development to Epe as a council boss and also made a lot of positive contributions to turn around public transportation in Lagos during his tenure as member of the State Executive Council.”
Before his death, Razak was the Balogun of Epe and a member of the Governor’s Advisory Council (GAC) of Lagos APC.
