“In a statement issued by Ikechukwu Eze, the former President’s media adviser, Dr Jonathan also commended late Fasanmi’s loyalty to the Nigerian cause, stressing that he was a national hero whose love for his people and country knew no bounds.

“Pa Fasanmi’s spirited crusade for freedom, equity and justice spanned generations. As a young man he joined forces with his mentor, late Chief Obafemi Awolowo and other formidable nationalists to fight for our nation’s independence and remained a force for fairness, unity, democracy and good governance until his death.
