Nigeria, September 21, 2015, (Blank NEWS Online) –
Delta State governorI, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, has commiserated with the Awolowo family, government and the entire people of Ogun State over the passing on of their matriarch, Hannah Idowu Awolowo, wife of the late Premier of Western Nigeria, Chief Obafemi Awolowo.
Governor Okowa in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Charles Ehiedu Aniagwu said that the late HID will obviously be missed by the people of Ogun state and the Yoruba nation in particular and the Nigerians in general.
“We take solace in her immense positive contributions to the society, most especially her role as a modest woman who was noted for her unflinching support to her husband’s political career in the first and second republic”, Okowa noted.
Governor Okowa described late Madam Awolowo as a woman who exhibited an uncommon ability to sustain not only the structure left behind by the late sage, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, but also added a motherly perspective which has seen prominent politicians in the country turn her place into a Mecca, of some sort.
While praying God to grant the late HID eternal rest, Governor Okowa enjoined the family and the government of Ogun state to take positive steps to immortalize her legacies.
