In a statement by the Governor’s Special Adviser On Communication and Strategy, Mr Yomi Layinka, Ajimobi described the octogenarian as a repository of Yoruba culture and tradition adding that  even though Baba Faleti died at the ripe age of 86, his passing away was very unfortunate, disheartening and sad.
