She was a stabilising force, Makinde’s family mourns death of Gov’s mother


The Makinde family has finally announced the death of the mother of Oyo State Governor, Mrs Abigail Makinde, describing her as a stabilising force in the family.

A statement signed by the Jagun Olubadan, Chief Muyiwa Makinde, a barrister, on behalf of the family, indicated that the deceased “departed this world in the early hours of today, Thursday, October 15, 2020.”

It further stated that Mama gave no indication of any sickness.

The statement read further, “She slept peacefully in the Lord at the age of 81, in the early hours of the day at her Ibadan home, 7B, Oyeleke Street, Ikolaba, Ibadan.

“While we appreciate the Almighty for sparing her life thus far, we must confess that we will sorely miss her counsel, motherly role and impact on the lives of her children and the grandchildren.

“We will equally miss her impactful role as a stabilising force in the family, her community and especially Oyo State, which is currently being governed by her son and our brother, Engineer Seyi Makinde.”
