The All Progressives Congress (APC) has lost its dispatch supervisor at the national secretariat Abdulrasak Sanusi alias Baba Osun.
He died on Sunday at age 61 after a brief illness.
The party announced his death in a statement on Monday by the national secretary, caretaker/extraordinary convention planning committee John Udoedeghe.
Baba Osun, according to the statement posted to Twitter, was one of the party’s long-standing staff.
“With deep regrets, the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress announces the death of one of the Party’s long-standing staff, Abdulrasak Usman Sanusi who died on Sunday after a brief illness.
“The late Abdulrasak who was fondly called ‘Baba Osun’ by colleagues and friends was the party’s dispatch supervisor at the National Secretariat. He previously worked at the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), one of the legacy political parties that merged into the governing APC,” the statement reads.
The party commiserated with the bereaved family, adding that it would “miss the experience, sense of duty and maturity the late Abdulrasak displayed in the discharge of his duties.”
