The Aare Ona Kakanfo, Chief (Dr) Gani Adams has described the death of Dr Fredrick Faseun as a great loss to the Yoruba race, Nigeria and the world at large, pointing out that he left behind a worthy legacy.
“I see him as a father, and I passed through him for a period of five years.
“Baba deserves all respect because he acquitted himself so diligently, and will also be remembered as a distinguished leader in all ramifications, and one that was greatly admired by the general public and his peers as a straight forward and complete gentleman.
“He demonstrated wisdom, honesty and good leadership, established friendship, harmony and accommodation across board. He was as a community leader and a prominent patriot, which was no doubt a testimony to be reference to.
Adams, in a condolence letter to the family of the founding father of Odua Peoples Congress (OPC), said he received the news of the death with shock and disbelieve.
“Baba exhibited very good leadership qualities, wisdom and wealth of experience which indeed he put to use in the discharge of his responsibility, as well as upholding the institution’s tradition of excellence, while alive,” the statement concluded.
