Lagos State Governor, Mr Babatunde Fashola (SAN) on Wednesday expressed his heartfelt condolence to the Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole over the passage of his wife, Mrs Clara Oshiomhole noting that she would be sorely missed by all.
In a condolence letter to the Edo State Governor, signed by Governor Fashola (SAN), he said it was a painful experience to lose a soulmate, a wife and a confidant in any circumstance, particularly when her love, support and advice are required to continue to implement policies and programmes aimed at returning Edo State into its enviable heights.
He added: “She would be sorely missed as a confidant, comforter and a mother who has steadfastly kept the home front going throughout the decades of your engagements to represent the interest of the teeming masses of this country as a labour leader”.
“A true heroine of the struggle to enthrone genuine democratic governance in Edo State, her passage at this time has a devastating impact in more ways than one. As the First Lady of Edo State, she has done a lot to positively touch the lives of many, especially women and children within the last two years”.
The Governor noted that though the suddenness of the physical separation could be painful, Governor Oshiomhole should take solace in the fact that his wife lived a fulfilled life and impacted positively on her community in numerous ways, adding : “Her public advocacy regarding the right policies to fight cancer is particularly commendable”.
Governor Fashola prayed that God grant the soul of Mrs Oshiomhole sweet repose and endow the husband, the family and the people of Edo State she left behind with the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss and offered his sincere condolences on behalf of the First family, the Government and people of Lagos State.
