The Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has commiserated with his Chief of Staff, Mr Tayo Ayinde, on the death of his wife, Adedoyin Ayinde.
Ayinde, who was from the Oniru royal family, died on Sunday at the age of 36 after a brief illness.
Sanwo-Olu, in a statement issued on Monday by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Gboyega Akosile, described the death as a great loss not only to the Ayinde and Ojora families but also to the state.
He said, “On behalf of my family, my cabinet, the Lagos State government, and the people of Lagos State, I commiserate with my Chief of Staff, Mr Tayo Ayinde on the demise of his beloved wife, Princess Adedoyin Raliat Ayinde.
“No doubt, the death of a loved one is usually a painful episode in our lives because it is irreparable but we must always take solace in God for a good life spent by the deceased person.
“We should be consoled by the fact that the late Princess Ayinde lived a fulfilling life and has impacted positively the people that came in contact with her during her lifetime.
“She impacted many lives positively as a public officer at the Apapa Local Government Area, where she served passionately and contributed her quota to the growth and development of the local government and Lagos State. She was a trusted partner, friend, wife, and great supporter to her husband, Mr Tayo Ayinde and as well as a caring and loving mother to her children.”
