Ondo State governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, has admonished the Caretaker Chairman of Akure North Local Government, Surv. Bankole Ogbesetore to be courageous and take heart over her wife’s death.
Akeredolu who in company of his wife, Betty, led members of the state Executive council, members of the All Progressive Congress Party to the funeral ceremony of the deceased in Iju-itaogbolu, urged the husband not to be depressed but rather accept it as a will of God.
He noted that there is no armour against fate and however prayed against recurrence of such in the family and in Ondo state at large.
The governor appealed to friends and political associates not to abandon the caretaker chairman in this trying period, and also assured him of government’s support when necessary.
In her tribute, Mrs. Akeredolu described Late Akure North chairperson as a team builder personified, good-hearted and workaholic, saying she will be missed by the FOWOSO family.
Earlier, the officiating minister of the Prayer Centre Church of God, Pastor Felix Aluko described Late Mrs. Tiwalade Ogbesetore as a devout Christian who didn’take sanctuary’s work for granted.
He noted that our time on earth is too short and we should therefore live every moment in preparation for death.
The cleric urged every individual to render good service to humanity in whatever position they occupy while on earth.
The deceased, 55, until her demise was the head of Guidance and Counseling unit of Fiwasaye Girls Grammar School, Akure, and was survived by her husband and four children.
