Lagos PDP chairman Adegbola Dominic dies at 73
The chairman of the Lagos state branch of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Dr Dominic Adegbola, died on Wednesday at the age of 73, the Nigerian Tribune has learned.
Party spokesperson, Barr. Taofik Gani, confirmed this in a telephone conversation, claiming that the head of the PDP, who had been ill for a few days and was being treated, died at Gbagbada general hospital.
It will be recalled that a judgment of the High Court of Lagos recently reinstated him in his functions as president of the party in the state.
Dominic, a doctor, was a grassroots politician during the days of the former Action Group (AG) led by the sage, Chief Obafemi Awolowo.
He had held several other political posts, including that of state SDP officer; State President of the PAC and National President of the AFN (founded by the late Jakande).
He had also contested the post of governor of Lagos State under the APGA platform, while he had also contested the Lagos West senatorial primary of the Social Democratic Party, a contest between him and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
