Gbajabiamila, in a condolence message by his media adviser, Lanre Lasisi which was available to newsmen in Abuja on Sartuday expressed shock and sadness when he learnt of the death of Razak aged 74 after a brief illness in a Lagos hospital.

According to him, “as a grassroots politician, the innate qualities of KLM did not go unnoticed which was responsible for the diligent handling of his responsibilities as a Local Government chairman and a Commissioner in Lagos as well as a member of the Governors Advisory Council (GAC)

“Chief Razak’s quest to impact the lives in the state was evident through his endearment to the people of Epe and Lagos State as a whole.

“My heart goes his family, people of Epe, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu; other GAC members, Lagos APC and the Government of Lagos State.

“It is also my prayer that Allah gives everyone he left behind the fortitude to bear the loss and grants the departed Al Jannah Firdaus.”
