Ayo Giwa, the Chief Press Secretary to former Governor of Ogun State, Gbenga, is dead.
According to a closed associate, Giwa died on Sunday evening after a brief illness.
The former governor confirmed the news to newsmen on Monday.
“I received the very shocking news of the sudden death of our own Ayo Giwa last night after a brief illness,” Daniel said.
The former Governor said Ayo Giwa was one of the original Gateway Front Media team since 2001.
After the election in 2003, Daniel said Giwa emerged the Chief Press Secretary of a former Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Hon Titi Oseni-Gomez.
He said, “He later became my CPS in 2011, the position he held until his demise last night.”
Daniel described Giwa as an amiable and pleasant personality, whom he said concentrated on his job “with dedication and loyalty.”
He described as most unfortunate, the fact that the deceased Giwa passed on at this time; saying, “all we can do is to pray for the family he left behind that God will grant them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.”
