In a statement by the Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Ismail Omipidan in Osogbo, the State capital, Oyetola described late Mrs. Makinde as a pillar who had left behind the legacies of service and good character.
He said the great values the octogenarian left behind would serve as a guiding light not only to the bereaved family but also to the people of Oyo State and humanity at large.
The statement reads in part: “On behalf of the people and Government of the State of Osun, I sympathise with my brother, Seyi Makinde, the Governor of Oyo State, over the passing of his mother, Mama Abigail.
“Mama lived a good life while she was with us. Therefore, we must take solace in the fact that she left behind a lasting legacy through her children and those close to her.
“There is no denying the fact that she lived a life of service to God and humanity; and her exemplary life, we would continue to cherish.”
Oyetola prayed God to grant the deceased eternal rest and the bereaved family, the government and people of Oyo State the fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss.
