Edema, who was also a former lawmaker in the state, noted that the late Akeredolu was a good and loving mother not only to her children, but to everyone around her.

According to him, the family should be consoled in the fact that their matriarch lived to witness the successes of her children who rose to the peak of their careers.

“We thank God for her life and we pray the Lord grants our dear governor, his siblings and the entire family the grace to bear this loss.

“My prayers and thoughts are with the governor as well as the entire family at this time.

“Mama was a conscientious Christian who spent her years in the service of God and the community.

“What she stood for is reflected in the moral uprightness of her children, who are excelling in their many disciplines and are renowned for their honours,” Edema said.(NAN)
