No matter how old our parents are, no one prays to lose them, and we can only commiserate with our dear Governor. Our mother, Lady Evangelist Mrs. Grace Bosede Akeredolu, was a woman of substance who raised champions and laid down examples for us to follow. We love her so much that we would have asked death to give her back the life.

Therefore, my dear Governor, kindly brace up as she has set a pace for you to follow, especially in fatherhood and leadership. Although she has left us physically, her presence in the spirit remains eternal. I am also sure she is resting at the bosom of the Lord, and when we meet again, it will be at our Lord Jesus Christ’s feet.

May her soul rest in peace.
