Gov. Sanwo-Olu, Obasa, Commiserate With Lagos CP, Over Mother’s Death

The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, and the State’s House of Assembly Speaker, Mudashiru Obasa, have commiserated with the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, over the death of his mother, Alhaja Sikirat Odumosu, who passed on Thursday, after a brief illness.


In a Statement issued on Friday, by Gov. Sanwo-Olu’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Gboyega Akosile, the Governor urged family, friends, and associates of the late Octogenarian, as well as the people of Ijebu-Ode, to take solace in the fact that, Alhaja Odumosu lived a good life before her departure at a ripe old age of 88.


The Governor stated that, although the wise counsels of Alhaja, as an elderly woman, would surely be missed, not only by her family, but also by the people who were close to her during her lifetime, he encouraged the Lagos State Police Chief, and the entire Odumosu family, to see the passing of their beloved mother as the opening of a new chapter and new reality for them.


Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu also added,

“On behalf of the good people of Lagos State and my adorable wife, Ibijoke, I sympathize with the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, on the demise of his beloved mother, Alhaja Sidikat Odumosu.


“I pray that God will grant the late Alhaja Odumosu eternal rest and grant the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.”


Similarly, Lagos state Speaker, Obasa, in a Statement issued by his media office, condoled with the State’s CP; stating that the Police Commissioner should take solace in the fact that his mother played a vital role in moulding him and his siblings which made them successful and responsible citizens, contributing their quota to the Nigerian society.


“Be consoled by the fact that, you had a great woman as a mother. The result of her contributions reflect in your success as a police chief today.


He added,

“I share in your grief at this time, but I know that mama has played her role well both as a religious woman and as one with a moral uprightness.

Obasa, who described the late octogenarian, as a religious woman, who lived a good life; also consoled the family, friends and people of Ijebu-Ode, to take solace in the fact that Alhaja lived well, and prayed that, God grant Alhaja Sikirat Odumosu eternal rest and the family the fortitude to bear the loss.


“On behalf of the Lagos State House of Assembly and all those we represent, I express our sympathies to you and encourage you to remain strong at this trying period.


“I also pray that God grant Alhaja Odumosu Aljannah Firdaus while granting the bereaved family the fortitude to bear the loss…”
