Hon. Sanai Agunbiade, Majority Leader of the House pronounced Hon. Braimoh as a diligent Hon. Member who effectively and efficiently contributed to the growth, and integrity of the House.
“Late Braimoh’s presence when required, promoted the image of this House, and on behalf of my constituents, I pray that may God grant the wife, children and the people of Kosofe Constituency II the fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss.”
Hon. Mojisola Meranda, Deputy Whip, while commemorating with the people of Kosofe II and his family said that, “I have had the opportunity to work with him at different committee levels and he has always been a delightful and detailed Member, a socialite and a good man.”
Hon. Sanni Okanlawon noted that he had observed Late. Hon. Braimoh and extracted high amount of knowledge from him during their encounters, “I have lost a brother and counterpart of Kosofe Constituency II and he will be fully missed by his constituents and colleagues at the Lagos State House of Assembly and Lagos State at large. We have lost an extraordinary person.” He said.
