The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has mourned the passing of Nigeria's Ambassador to Spain, Ambassador Ademola Rasaq Seriki.
In a statement, Obaseki described Ambassador Seriki as a kindhearted and compassionate diplomat.
According to him, "It is with a heavy heart that I mourn the passing of Nigeria’s Ambassador to the Kingdom of Spain, Ambassador Ademola Rasaq Seriki (CON), who passed at the age of 63 years.
"Ambassador Seriki was kindhearted and compassionate with a personality that was affable and endearing.
"He was a thorough-bred diplomat who was devoted to his responsibilities, deploying his wealth of experience and knowledge in service of the motherland."
The governor said late Amb. Seriki was a complete gentleman, who performed creditably at various times when he was called upon to serve the country, first as a Minister and later as an Ambassador.
"I condole with the government and people of Lagos State; the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu and the Ambassador’s immediate family.
"I pray that God will grant all the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss."
