Dr Emmanuel Abiodun, an educationist, died on Monday at the age of 89.
Sanwo-Olu, in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Gboyega Akosile, on Tuesday, urged Gov. Abiodun, the deceased family, friends, and people of Iperu-Remo and Ogun to immortalise the octogenarian.
He urged the Abiodun family to take solace in God for a good life lived by the deceased.
”Papa Abiodun, fondly called ‘Baba Teacher’ by young and old due to his relentless efforts at imparting knowledge and inculcating the right values in his students, lived a fulfilled life as an educationist.
”He served as a school teacher for many years across the old Western State and made a positive impact on the lives of his numerous students who have turned out as great men and women in the society today,” he said.
He prayed that God would grant the deceased eternal rest and the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss. (NAN)
