Confirming the death of Adegbola, the Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Taofik Gani ststed that;
The Lagos State PDP Chairman, Dr ADEGBOLA DOMINIC, has just died of COVID-19 related ailments. The late senior medical practitioner has been an exceptional politician who had deployed much of his hard-earned money into philanthropism. He was the Medical Director of Santa Maria Hospital.
Dominic, a medical practitioner, was a grassroots politician from the days of defunct Action Group (AG) led by late sage, Chief Obafemi Awolowo.
He had held many political positions, notable amongst being State SDP officer; State Chairman of PAC; National Chairman of APN (Founded by late Jakande); State Chairman of Lagos PDP.
He had also contested lagos State governorship under the platform of APGA.
Adegbola was the Jakande group candidate for the Lagos West zsenatorial primary of the SDP, a contest between him and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Gani described his death “as Matyrdom as he was dogged about the emancipation of the oppressed, pauperized and less privileged”.
The publicity Secretary added;
He stood for the development of lagos and he sure regrets that this lagos is not as he wished. He will be forever remembered in Lagos Politics. We condole with his family. All PDP flags In the state shall fly at halfmast.
All PDP meetings at this time are to be prayers for him. Burial arrangements shall be as presented by the family.
Adegbola succeeded Moshood Salvador as the party chairman in the state after the latter defected to All Progressives Congress in 2018.
May his soul rest in peace.
