A Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Hon. Akinwole Akinwale, has described the demise of the mother of the Governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde, as a great loss to the state.
Akinwole, former Ogbomoso North Council Secretary, said this in Ogbomoso on Thursday when he heard about the death of the governor’s mother.
“The demise of Madam Abigail Omojolagbe Makinde is a glorious home call of an irreplaceable matriarch.
“I wish to commiserate with the Governor of Oyo state Engr. Seyi Makinde and the entire family on the passage of their matriarch.
“The death of mama is indeed a great loss, not just to the Makinde’s family, but the entire state.
“We can all attest to the fact that mama lived a fulfilled and exemplary life and this is worthy of emulation,” Wolekanle said.
He added that the deceased would be greatly missed for her motherly role, timely advice, support and consistent prayer for the Makindes and the state at large.
“Mama has left an indelible mark and she indeed lived for mankind. There is no gainsaying that God has blessed Oyo State through the fruits of her womb,” he stated.
Akinwole prayed to God to grant the family the fortitude to bear the loss.
