He added that her counsel, motherly role, and impact on the lives of her children and the grandchildren will not be forgotten.
His words, “While we appreciate the Almighty God for sparing her life thus far, we must confess that we will sorely miss her counsel, motherly role, and impact on the lives of her children and the grandchildren.
“We will equally miss her impactful role as a stabilising force in the family, her community and especially Oyo state, which is currently being governed by her son and our brother, Engineer Seyi Makinde.
“We sincerely appreciate the prayers and condolences of our numerous well-wishers.
May Mama’s soul rest peacefully with her maker.”
