Take heart: Lanlehin commiserates with Makinde over mum’s demise
The gubernatorial candidate of African Democratic Congress in the 2019 election in Oyo State, Senator Olufemi Lanlehin has expressed sadness over the demise of Governor Seyi Makinde’s mother who died on Thursday. Lanlehin stated this in a statement signed by his campaign media team reads:
“I received with sadness, the news yesterday, of the unfortunate demise of the governor’s mother, Mama Abigail Makinde, aged 81.
Though Mama exited at a fairly old age, yet, as humans, there is still the longing to spend many more years in the company of our loved ones, especially our mothers. Considering the inexplicable bond between the mother and the child, one is not surprised at the expression of grief and the outpouring of emotions, from the Governor, family, friends, and well-wishers. It is on this note, that I empathise sincerely, with the Oyo State governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde, and indeed, the entire Makinde family.”
“While I pray for the eternal repose of the soul of the dear departed, I equally request the Almighty to grant them, the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.
I wish the family God’s provision as they prepare to give Mama a befitting burial.”
