It would be recalled that the older Fashola was ill and had to be flown to the United States of America sometime last year in May for medical treatment.
Latest news reaching Information Nigeria indicates that Mr. Ademola Fashola gave up the ghost in the early hours of Monday at an undisclosed hospital in Lagos, at the age of 79.
Confirming the death of the governor’s father was Mr Hakeem Bello, Special Adviser to Fashola on media, who is in Saudi Arabia with the governor performing the lesser hajj.
He said the state government would soon issue a statement giving details of the burial arrangement just as unconfirmed reports say Gov. Fashola is already on his way back home after learning of his father’s demise.
