Governor of Ondo State, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, says he’s saddened over the death of his mother, Lady Evangelist Grace Akeredolu.
Madam Akeredolu died at the age of 90 on Thursday morning.
She celebrated her 90th birthday in February, 2022.
Akeredolu, in a statement he personally signed on Thursday and obtained via his Facebook page, described his late mother, as an ‘Abiyamo’ who lived a purposeful life.
The statement is reproduced below:
My siblings and I announce, with deepest regret and total submission to the will of the Almighty, the passing into glory of our adorable, dutiful and ever dotting mother, Lady Evangelist Grace Bosede Akeredolu, this morning. She died peacefully in her sleep.
Though saddened and by the departure of Maami, the one Abiyamo we knew, we are consoled with the knowledge that, even as she transits to eternity, she will be guided by the strong hands of the angels of the light in which she dwelt during her eventful and fruitful sojourn on the terrestrial plane.
Maami rest in perfect peace.
Burial announcement will be made by the family.
Arakunrin Oluwarotimi O. Akeredolu, SAN,
Governor, Ondo State.
