The statement reads, “I commiserate with my dear brother, Governor Akeredolu on the passing of his beloved mother, Lady Akeredolu. Mama was a woman of grace, blessed by God. She did not only give her children good education and supported them, she witnessed their greatness. She was a rallying point for many of us who are close to the family.”

“Although her passing would leave a vacuum, it is a glorious exit, a celebration of life well spent in the service of God and humanity with attendant positive impact on the lives of many.”

“On behalf of my wife, the government and good people of Ekiti State, I commiserate with my brother, the Governor of Ondo State and the entire Akeredolus on this irreparable loss. May God grant the departed beloved mother eternal rest”
