Governor Rotimi Akeredolu’s mother, Grace, has died at the age of 90. 

Mr Akeredolu announced her death in a statement on Thursday morning. 

“My siblings and I announce, with deepest regret and total submission to the will of the Almighty, the passing into glory of our adorable, dutiful and ever doting mother, Lady Evangelist Grace Bosede Akeredolu, this morning,” stated the governor. 

Mr Akeredolu added that the nonagenarian “died peacefully” in her sleep.

“Though saddened and by the departure of Maami, the one Abiyamo we knew, we are consoled with the knowledge that, even as she transits to eternity, she will be guided by the strong hands of the angels of the light in which she dwelt during her eventful and fruitful sojourn on the terrestrial plane,” he added.
