Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun has expressed shock over the sudden death of Chief (Mrs.) Titi Ajanaku, who died on Wednesday evening at the age of 76.
Abiodun described the late Otun Iyalode of Egbaland as a foremost political activist, an astute administrator and a woman leader, who served the State meritoriously as the Chairman, old Abeokuta Local Government Council, as well as the nation, at the Federal Executive Council.
“I received the news of the demise of this great woman with rude shock. Mama Ajanaku was a woman of many parts; a trained Nurse, an activist, who fought the cause of women, a politician of high repute and a great philanthropist.
“We will miss her, particularly now that all hands are needed to build our future together. Though she is no more, we are happy that she lived an impactful life, a life of service to God and humanity”, Abiodun said.
The Governor noted that the death of the former Special Adviser to President Olusegun Obasanjo on Women Affairs, has created a vacuum which would be difficult to fill, adding that his administration would miss her services, wise counseling and advice.
While praying God to grant her soul eternal rest and the family, the fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss, Abiodun urged them to imbibe her exemplary life of service to God and humanity.
