The party, in a statement released by national advertising secretary Kola Ologbondiyan in Abuja on Thursday, said the PDP was saddened by Ayoola's death.
Ologbondiyan described the late Ayoola as a very loyal and dedicated party member, who has always been after Makinde and played important roles in his government campaign and eventual victory at the polls.
He recalled the commitment with which Ayoola performed his duties and the excellent managerial skills with which he performed all the tasks assigned to him.
“Our party really suffers. Nevertheless, we take comfort in the promise of Almighty God in relation to those who left in good works ”. said the advertising secretary.
He sympathized with Makinde, the Ayoola family, the Oyo state government and people, as well as the PDP herd in the state.
Ologbondiyan prayed to God, in his mercies, to grant everyone the courage to endure irreparable loss and to faithful parties, eternal rest.
