Ex-OSOPADEC Chair, Edema condoles Akeredolu over mother’s death

The immediate past Chairman of the Ondo State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission, OSOPADEC, Hon. Gbenga Edema, has commiserated with Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State over the demise of his mother, Lady Evangelist Grace Bosede Akeredolu.

Condoling with Akeredolu and his siblings, Edema, in a statement on Thursday, urged the Governor to take solace in the fact that his mother lived a good and fulfilled life during which she made priceless contributions to humanity.

The matriarch of the Akeredolu’s dynasty gave up the ghost in her sleep in the early hours of Thursday, September 15, 2022 at the age of 90.

While paying glowing tribute to Lady Evangelist Grace Akeredolu,
for being a good and loving mother not to just her children but also to everyone around her, Edema, a former lawmaker, joined the good people Ondo State to mourn the departed matriarch of the Akeredolu family.

According to Edema, the family should be consoled in the fact that their matriarch lived to witness the successes of her children who rose to the peak of their careers.

“We thank God for her life and we pray the Lord grants our dear governor, his siblings and the entire family the grace to bear this loss.

“My prayers and thoughts are with the governor as well as the entire family at this time.

“Mama was a conscientious Christian who spent her years in the service of God and the community.

“What she stood for is reflected in the moral uprightness of her children, who are excelling in their many disciplines and are renowned for their honours,” Edema said.
