Oluleye, PPPRA ex-boss buried @Ekiti - ITREALMS

The remains of  the former Executive Secretary, Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA), and later Petroleum Trust Development Fund, late Dr Oluwole Oluleye, has been laid to rest in his country home, Efon Alaaye, Ekiti State, reports ITREALMS.

Late Oluleye was laid to rest on Wednesday with eulogies from friends and well wishers including the governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi who described him as a leader who, not only shunned politics of bitterness but engaged in politics for development of both the masses and society.

Speaking at the funeral service held for the late Dr Oluleye, Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, has said the late Dr Oluleye, was an exemplary and quintessential leader who inspired many with his selflessness, humility, simplicity and sincerity in all that he did.

The funeral was attended by an array of dignitaries including the Deputy Governor of Ekiti State, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi, a former Deputy governor of Ekiti State, Prof. Modupe Adelabu and many top government functionaries.

“Every death diminishes us especially if it is the death of someone who is an exemplar in all its best, Dr Oluleye was an exemplar. He was a quintessential Ekiti leader and he was always very warm to everyone, as many here may know. he was a co-contestant in our recent gubernatorial election in Ekiti state and all through the process, I’m sure all of us who were in the contest with him will see one thing that his politics was without bitterness, his politics was for development and he consistently engaged me in the course of that race in a wide range of discussions that we really have to transform our state and he has served with distinction all over.

"I think his last official assignment was when he came to see me in 2013, I was still governor and he was the secretary of a project monitoring committee that President Jonathan set up to look at all the abandoned projects round the country. So, apart from coming from a distinguished family, he distinguished himself in every assignment that he was given, and for us this is a great loss to Ekiti,” he said.

Governor Fayemi urged members of Oluleye family, friends and well-wishers to take solace in the worthy legacies and examples that he left behind adding that the government and people of Ekiti state will always remember his works and his contributions to the development of the larger society.
