Gov. Biodun Oyebanji of Ekiti on Tuesday commiserated with the President, African Development Bank (AfDB), Dr Akinwumi Adesina, over the death of his mother, Mrs Eunice Adesina.

Oyebanji in a condolence message signed by his Special Adviser (Media), Yinka Oyebode, described the late matriarch of the Adesina family as a “loving and prayerful mother”.

“She also instilled in her children the virtues of hard work, integrity and dedication to duty,” the governor said.

Oyebanji said that the late Adesina was a mother figure to many and was loved and respected for her positive impact on many that came her way.

The governor said  this should be a source of consolation to the AfDB President and siblings.

Oyebanji, while praying for the repose of the deceased, said rather than mourning, it should be a celebration of life well spent in the service of God and humanity.

 “Mama has done her best. She has gone to have a well-deserved rest.

“I urge my brother and the entire family to take solace in the fact that she lived a remarkable life of impact and left behind excellent children and a good name.

“On behalf of my wife, the Government and the good people of Ekiti State, I commiserate with Dr Adesina and the entire family and pray that God grants them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss and grant mama eternal rest.” he said.
