The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has sent his condolences to the family of a former Chief of General Staff, Lt. General Oladipo Diya, over his death on Sunday.
Lawan also condoles with the government and people of Ogun State over the loss of the one-time number two citizen under the military regime of the late General Sani Abacha.
The Senate President describes General Diya as a fine officer who played his role dutifully during some of Nigeria’s most critical times.
Lawan said Diya kept his dignity under the unfortunate circumstances that ended his military career and remained a respected member of his community until he breathed his last.
The Senate President prayed for sweet repose of the soul of the departed General and for fortitude for his family, friends and associates to bear his loss.
