Ekiti State Governor, Mr Biodun Oyebanji has commiserated with the President, African Development Bank (AfDB), Dr Akinwumi Adesina, over the passing of his mother, Mrs Eunice Adesina.

Governor 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, who instilled in her children the virtues of hard work, integrity and dedication to duty.

He added that the late Madam Adesina was a mother figure to many and was loved and respected for her positive impact on many that came her way. This, the Governor said should be a source of consolation to the AfDB President and siblings.

While praying for the repose of the deceased, Oyebanji said rather than mourning, it is 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 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 added.
