The death of General Adetunji Idowu Olurin has depleted the socio-political leadership of the Ogun-West Senatorial District in particular and Ogun-State in general.
General Olurin lived an honest and disciplined life without blemish as a military officer and as chief executive officer of two States of the Old Oyo and Ekiti.
He made the Ogun people proud as a leader that was a good reference point in his chosen military career as an achiever and a disciplined officer that earned Nigeria great respect in the comity of nations based on his superlative performance as the ECOMOG commander.
General Olurin is reputed among the officers and men of the Nigerian army as the best Chief of Army Staff Nigeria never had.
The entire Ogun-West has indeed lost a rare gem, a primus inter paris and a leading light.
We commiserate with His Royal Majesty.,the Olu of Ilaro and Paramount Ruler of Yewa, the entire Olurin dynasty and the people of Ogun-West on this colossal loss.
May the soul of General Adetunji Idowu Olurin rest in perfect peace.
Coordinator Ogun -West Stakeholders Forum.
