Cleric urges virtuous legacies as Nigerians pay tributes to Oyediran
The Priest of Methodist Church of Nigeria, Wesley Chapel, Molete, Ibadan, Rev. (Dr.) Mercy Adenike Ogunbisi, yesterday, charged Nigerians, irrespective of religious, tribal and political affiliations to strive and leave good and virtuous legacies during their sojourn on Earth.
Ogunbisi emphasised the need for all to live an impactful life by positively touching the lives of the needy so as to leave a remarkable memory in the hearts of the people during their lifetime and after exiting the world.
The cleric gave the admonition during the service of songs held in Ibadan as part of the activities of the funeral service for Chairman of Afrihttps://editor.guardian.ng/wp-admin/post-new.php#edit_timestampcan Newspapers of Nigeria (ANN) Plc, Rev. (Mrs.) .
“Mama never used her position as the daughter of the late sage and famous politician, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, to oppress anybody. We are talking about this great and humble woman now that she is gone. What is the legacy you want to leave behind as a person?
“Reverend (Mrs.) Oyediran had the opportunity and she used it very well for the benefit of mankind by putting smiles on the faces of the needy in her immediate society. This is the time of reflection of our individual life. One day, people would sit down like this to talk about us after our death,” Ogunbisi stated.
In her tribute, the President-elect of Zonta Club of Ibadan, Zontian Tayo Alabi, said: “Mama Omotola Oyediran was a very dedicated and active member of our club. As the president from 1992 to 1994, she conducted programmes and affairs in a very professional and business manner.
“We shall forever remember and be grateful to her. Her name is on the marble on the wall of Zonta House, Ibadan.” One of the daughters of the deceased, Mrs. Ayotola Ayodeji, who gave the vote of thanks, expressed the gratitude of Oyediran family to all for their support, prayers and goodwill.
