He had, between 2010 and 2014, served as Commissioner for Information during the first term of former Gov. Kayode Fayemi.
 

Obasa said that the news of Afuye’s death was more devastating, knowing that he was reportedly active and showed no sign of any illness days before his demise at age 66.
 
He described the late speaker as a ‘fine gentleman’ whose experiences had contributed to the advancement of Nigeria’s democracy.
 

“The news of his death is more devastating because his state, Ekiti, just began a new dispensation; a change of baton requiring his experience as the head of the legislative arm of government.
 

Speaker Afuye

“As a lawyer and former commissioner for information, Speaker Afuye understood his calling and served with dignity and respect.
 

“No doubt, he was loved by his people, just as he was loved by his colleagues.

He will be sorely missed,” he remarked.
