A former Executive Secretary of the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA), Dr Oluwole Oluleye, is dead.
Oluleye, an aspirant on the platform of the All Progressives Congress in the 2018 governorship poll in Ekiti State, reportedly died on Saturday at an Abuja hospital, during a brief illness.
Oluleye, who lost the ticket to Dr Kayode Fayemi in the primary, was also at a time the executive secretary of the petroleum Development Trust Fund (PTDF).
Meanwhile, a senator elect in Ekiti State, Hon Opeyemi Bamidele, has described the death as a monumental loss to him and the state.
In a statement in Ado Ekiti on Saturday, Bamidele said Oluleye’s death was a devastating loss, being from Ekiti Central senatorial district where he had just won election to the Senate.
