Madam Makinde was a frank, straightforward woman – Gov. Abiodun
Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun says the late mother of his Oyo State counterpart, Madam Abigail Makinde was a frank and straightforward woman who raised her children in a godly way.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary Mr. Kunle Somorin, Governor Abiodun described the deceased as a source of strength to those who came in contact with her during her life time.
Governor Abiodun noted that he was particularly pained by the death when preparation was on top gear for her 82nd birthday, adding that with her death, Governor Seyi Makinde had lost a good adviser, motivator and a great counsellor.
While saying that Madam Makinde died at a period when her wise counseling was mostly needed not only in Oyo State, but in Nigeria in general, Governor Abiodun sympathized with his colleague and prayed the Almighty God to grant him the fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss.
The governor also prayed for the repose of soul of the deceased and called on Nigerians to emulate the deceased who lived a life of service to humanity.
