Gov. Oyebanji consoles AfDB President, Adesina over mother’s death

By Yinusa Ishola, Ado-Ekiti.


Gov. Biodun Oyebanji of Ekiti State on Tuesday commiserated with the President, African Development Bank (AfDB), Dr Akinwumi Adesina, over the death of his mother, Mrs Eunice Adesina.


Oyebanji in a condolence message signed by his Special Adviser (Media), Yinka Oyebode, described the late matriarch of the Adesina family as a “loving and prayerful mother.


“She also instilled in her children the virtues of hard work, integrity and dedication to duty,” he said.


The governor said that the late Adesina was a mother figure to many, adding that she was loved and respected for her positive impact on people that came her way.


Oyebanji said that this should be a source of consolation to the AfDB President and his siblings.


The governor, while praying for the repose of the deceased, said that rather than mourning, the occasion should be a celebration of life well spent in the service of God and humanity.


“Mama has done her best; she has gone to have a well-deserved rest.


“I urge my brother and the entire family to take solace in the fact that she lived a remarkable life of impact and left behind excellent children and a good name.


“On behalf of my wife, the government and the good people of Ekiti State, I commiserate with Dr Adesina and the entire family and pray that God grants them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss and grant mama eternal rest.” he said.
