Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has commiserated with the President of the African Development Bank, (AFDB) Dr. Akinwumi Adesina over the demise of his mother, Mrs. Eunice Adesina.
The Governor in a condolence message to the former minister of Agriculture described the late Mrs. Adesina as a quintessential mother who nurtured her children to be responsible citizens respected globally.
He noted that the success story of Akinwumi and his siblings is an eloquent testimony that their mother was a woman of substance who inculcated the virtue of discipline, hard work, honesty, and commitment to the ideals of nationhood in her children.
Ortom stated that the avalanche of tributes eulogizing the late Mrs. Adesina for her philanthropy, evangelism, and good neighbourliness is a lesson the living should emulate.
He said her untiring efforts and resolve towards ensuring a society where peace and security of lives and properties are guaranteed will remain a reference point for many years to come.
The Governor wished that the late Mrs. Adesina lived longer than now but pointed out that death is a necessary end that must come when it shall.
He enjoined the Adesinas to take solace in their mother’s exemplary life worthy of emulation just as he prayed that the good Lord grant her eternal rest.
