It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Hon. Tayo Sanyaolu, Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Tertiary Education. On behalf of Lagos Division Youth, my team and I send our deepest condolences to Brother Tayo’s family and the entire youth in Lagos at this difficult time. The world mourns with you and celebrates the extraordinary life of this remarkable man of value who devoted his life to nation building through youth empowerment.
His significant contribution made to tertiary education in Lagos State is evidence of his effectiveness of organizing a forward-thinking generation and supporting student unions with strong representation and egalitarianism.
Due to his diligent work, Hon. Tayo not only received several renowned accolades but also the esteem of millions of young people who were moved by his dedication to capacity building, liberal governance, and civic participation.
So, despite our sorrow and pain, I hope Sanyaolu’s loved ones will understand that his work did not end with his death but rather that his spirit will continue to live on through the daily deeds of the tens of thousands of young people who are now carrying on his struggle to build a more sustainable Nation.
May the Almighty God grant his soul external peace and pardon his sins.
