The minister stated this when he visited the families of the five deceased members in Arandun, Agbonda, Omu-Aran, Oko and Odo Owa, all in the Ekiti/Irepodun/Isin/Oke-Ero Federal Constituency of Kwara.

The APC won a landmark victory at the Saturday’s bye-election where the deceased hailed from.

A statement issued on the condolence visit was made available to newsmen on Tuesday in Abuja by Segun Adeyemi, the Special Adviser to the minister.

The minister, according to the statement promised that the APC would not abandon the dependants of the deceased who died in a road traffic crash between Omu-Aran and Oro in the state.

At Agbonda, the minister and his entourage attended the funeral service for one of the five deceased members, Chief Ayobami Adekeye, an official of the party in Ajase Ward 2.

He also visited the two hospitals in Omu-Aran, where those injured in the accident were being treated to personally wish them a speedy recovery.

The minister was accompanied by Kwara APC Chairman Bashir Bolarinwa, House of Representatives Member-elect Tunji Olawuyi, Kwara South Senatorial candidate Lola Ashiru and other state party officials.
