He said Aluko, who was once a Principal Officer of the Senate, gave a good account of himself in the upper chamber between 1999 and 2003.

“Senator Gbenga Aluko served his fatherland diligently at the highest level of lawmaking. He also made bold imprints in private enterprise. He will be sorely missed,” Lawan said.

The Senate President prayed for God to comfort all his loved ones and grant them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
