The death of a Commissioner of the Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC), Mr. Abdullateef Raji, is being mourned by the Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, and the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress.

Raji, who was also a former Special Adviser on Information and Strategy between 2011 and 2015, died on Monday at the age of 54.

Ambode, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Habib Aruna, described the late Raji as a seasoned media strategist.

“Raji, in no small way, contributed to the success of the last local government election in Lagos where he served as one of the LASIEC commissioners. He was ever committed to contribute his quota in any office he was appointed to serve.

“His demise has come as a rude shock to us as he died in the line of duty. He was a brilliant scholar and an astute writer, who used his pen to enhance the narrative of the rule of law and democracy in Nigeria,” Ambode said.

The state APC described Raji as a dedicated party member and a “great soldier of ideas in politics.”

“Lagos APC will definitely miss Lateef Raji’s deep intellectual disposition, as well as the intelligence, energy and integrity he brought to bear in the discharge of any assignment given to him,” the party said in a statement.
