THE PASSING ONTO GLORY OF AN ICON, MY MENTOR, LEADER AND AN ASTUTE ADMINISTRATOR, ASIWAJU JUBRIL MARTIN KUYE: MY CONDOLENCES






 _Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ilayhi Raji'un..._ 

Nigerians, and in particular the people of Ago-Iwoye, woke up this morning to hear of the passing onto glory of our father, leader, a role model and an iconic figure whose entire life was dedicated to building the generation next. Asiwaju Jubril Martins Kuye has left a huge void in our political firmament. Our consolation is in the fact that Otunba Fesojoye of Ijebu Land was fond of saying, "there is no success until you have a successor" and indeed he has many enviable successors in all areas of life. 

Chief Martins Kuye is a foremost humanist, an astute public administrator, an iconic politician, political leader, a successful entrepreneur, a traditional leader and a builder per excellence. He gave his all in the field of politics. He was a founding father of our great party, the People's Democratic Party. He was at one time or another a member of the defunct Social Democratic Party, SDP and the UNCP. As a Senator in the third Republic, he distinguished himself exceedingly. 

As a Federal Minister, he was the man Allah used to take me to Abuja when I served as his Personal Assistant. His mastery of his official responsibilities and delivery of his services cannot be underestimated. He was an outstanding Economist having attended the Harvard University Business School in 1983. His learning experiences were felt in the way he conducted his official duties as a two-time Federal Minister; a feat yet to be matched by any one from our Senatorial  district. 

We shall continue to  console ourselves with  the fact that you have lived a fulfilled life as many of us, your mentees, are doing well in public service, their chosen careers and other positions we occupy today. We shall miss your calm disposition, astuteness, candor, brilliant and intelligent contributions to issues. 

I, Rt. Hon. Adekoya Adesegun Abdel-Majid, The Aremo Ebumawe of Ago-Iwoye, on behalf of my immediate family members, and the entire good people of Ijebu North/Ijebu East/Ogun Waterside federal Constituency join thousands of Nigerians to wish you easy, unhindered and seamless passage to heaven while we wish the Jubril Martins Kuye Dynasty the fortitude to bear the loss. 

We shall all miss you, JMK. 

Rest in peace the Asiwaju of Ago-Iwoye Kingdom. 


Rt. Hon. Adekoya Adesegun Abdel-Majid 
(ATTACKER) 
Deputy Minority Whip 
House of Representatives 
Abuja.
