Photo: Gov of Ekiti Weeps With Late Olayinka's Family



The aged mother of the late Deputy Governor of Ekiti State, Mrs Funmi Olayinka, on Sunday wept profusely as she received Governor Kayode Fayemi and his wife, Bisi.

Fayemi, alongside his wife and other top government officials on a condolence visit, arrived at the Famuwagun’s family house of the parents of departed Olayinka in Oke Ori-Omi, Ado Ekiti, at about 10am.

Emotions ran high as the governor could not hold back tears when the 81-year old grieving mother, Mrs. Adetutu Grace Famuagun, repeatedly asked “Kayode, where is Funmi?

The octogenarian’s insistence on seeing her daughter produced more tears as the guests and all others in attendance wept uncontrollably.

Meanwhile, Governor Fayemi has cancelled all his engagements, including the symposium organised for the youths at Ikogosi Ekiti.

In a statement released yesterday, he also suspended all official ceremonies.

A condolence register is now open at the office of the governor, office of the deputy, the state liaison offices in Lagos and Abuja.

In addition, the state government has declared a seven-day mourning during which all flags in the state will fly at half mast.

Already, commiseration has been pouring in from publc office holders and other prominent Nigerians.

The President, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, leadership and members of the National Assembly, state governors, opposition leaders and other eminent personalities have continued to pay glowing tributes to the deceased.

Mrs. Olayinka, 52 and mother of three, died in a Lagos hospital on Saturday after a long battle with cancer.
