The lawmaker representing, Egbado North/Imeko Afon Federal Constituency, Hon. Olaifa Jimoh Aremu (OJA) MHR has lamented the death of Oba (Hon.) Rasaq Babatunde Adewusi, Onijoun of Ijoun land, Egbado North, Ogun State as a great loss to the state, the Egbado and the Ketu people.
In a statement he personally signed, the lawmaker, recalled that the late Onijoun  was a three term member of 5th, 6th & 7th Assembly at the Federal House of Representatives, Abuja.
Oba Adewusi represented the Peoples Democratic Party from 2003 to 2011 and the Peoples Party of Nigeria between 2011 and 2015 in the House.
The statement read: “It is with a heavy heart that I received the news of ascent to the throne of heaven by His Royal Highness, Oba (Hon.) Rasaq Babatunde Adewusi, Onijoun of Ijoun land, Egbado North, Ogun State whom we have accepted the will of Allah over the joining of his ancestors so soon.
“It will be recalled that the late Onijoun of Ijoun was a three term member of 5th, 6th & 7th Assembly at the Federal House of Representatives, Abuja from 2003 to 2015 (PDP 2003 to 2011 and PPN 2011 to 2015). 
“Such a personality leaving our land at this moment definitely cannot be an easy feeling but we take solace in the good, impacted and fulfilling life he lived as well as his peaceful tenure as Onijoun of Ijoun land. 
“Several conversations we had during and after the last general elections till less than two weeks before his final home calling is a testimonial to the fact that late Kaabiyesi was until his demise an active stakeholder in the socio – cultural and political affairs of Yewa North, Ogun West and the memory of his contributions in this regard as well as his committed passion to the progress of Ogun State will continue to linger within us.
“On behalf of the good people of Yewa North and Imeko Afon Local government areas, I commiserate with the family, friends, colleagues, particularly the entire kinsmen from Ijoun and I pray that almighty Allah Subhanahu Wa ta’ala grant all of us the fortitude to bear the loss and grant him eternal rest.”, Aremu said.
