Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has described as sad the death of veteran broadcaster and actor, Pa Adebayo Faleti.

The Governor described Faleti, who died at the age of 86, as a zealous  promoter of culture, noting that his works would always be cherished.

Amosun also stated that the poet and writer would be remembered for his contributions to the birth and growth of the broadcast industry, particularly the television.

“His role as one of the pioneers of the Western Nigeria Television (WNTV), the first television station in Africa and a consistent television personality, made him a pride to broadcast industry.

Baba Faleti, as a broadcaster, poet and writer targeted his energy at the promotion of culture and his death at this time is regrettable. His sound wisdom would have been valuable now that we are all battling to restore our fading traditional values.

“He will be missed by all Nigerians, especially broadcast and theatre practitioners, who regard him as a role model,” the governor lamented.

He prayed God to grant his family to the fortitude to bear the loss as his creative soul rest in peace.
