The former senator and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, Munirudeen Muse, is dead.

The former senator died at the age 81.

The APC Lagos State publicity secretary, Joe Igbokwe announced the death on Tuesday.

Late Mr. Muse represented Lagos central senatorial district in the Senate from 2007 and 2011.

Speaking with Punch Newspaper, Sulaimon Muse, the son of the late chieftain said his father was kind-hearted.

“I saw you last, right inside the Lagos Central Mosque. I never knew that was the last time I would set my eyes on you alive,” the younger Muse said in a tribute.

“I called you two Fridays ago. You even called me back thereafter, and we discussed. I never knew you were saying goodbye to me.”

Also, in a statement by House Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila, who hails from the same Lagos Central Senatorial District, he described Mr Wase’s demise as “sad and painful.”

“On this day, I join millions of Lagosians to mourn a very distinguished man, who served his people with uttermost dedication and commitment. He was a perfect gentleman and silent achiever,” the statement signed by Mr Gbajabiamila’s aide, Lanre Lasisi, read.

“As a politician myself, I learnt from his wealth of experience. I remembered our public engagement at Eko Club, Surulere in 2018 where he encouraged me not to renege on the pursuit for the speakership seat in the interest of the country.

“Though he is no more today, we find solace in the fact that he lived a life worthy of emulation,” Mr Gbajabiamila said.
