The Ogun State Solidarity Movement (OSM) has commiserated with the Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun on the death of his Dad, Dr Emmanuel Adesanya Abiodun.
In a statement signed by the President OSM, Lekan Shobo Shobowale and made available to journalists in Abeokuta, the late patriarch did not only reach a ripe age but also lived an exemplary life.
The statement added that the legacies left behind are those of service, integrity and honesty and are displayed by her children; saying that it is doubtless that Pa Abiodun was survived by “great children” in line with a popular Yoruba prayer.
He stressed that it was “not a time for condolences and commiseration but it is a celebration of life for someone who passed on at 89 years”.
The statement also described the deceased as an epitome of fatherhood, humility, godliness and fairness adding that though it has been established for mankind to die, but the Patriach would be missed for the support he gave to the Governor and his siblings.
