Chairman, Nigeria Governors’ Forum and Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi; his Lagos State counterpart, Babajide Sanwo-Olu and former Governor of Bauchi State, Adamu Mua’zu, have described the late father of the Ogun State governor, Dapo Abiodun, as a man who lived an excellent and a sacrificial life.

They also submitted that Pa Emmanuel Abiodun used the teaching profession to produce champions for the country. The trio gave this position in their separate remarks when they paid condolence visit to Governor Abiodun on the demise of his father at the Iperu-Remo family house of the governor, yesterday.

Fayemi noted that the late Pa Abiodun played important part in education development in the Western Region and Ekiti State in particular, as a teacher at the Christ School, Ado-Ekiti, describing the deceased as a thorough-bred teaching professional who tutored people to become champions in their chosen fields.


Also speaking, Sanwo-Olu noted that the deceased was a role model and a disciplinarian, who used his profession to impact positively on the lives of so many people.

He said that though he is no more, it is imperative for those he left behind to appreciate God for what He used the deceased to achieve, declaring that “Pa Abiodun lived a good life and his memories will linger for a long time.”

On his part, Mua’zu described the late Abiodun as a man who did his best for the people, his environment and beyond. He added that he was a father of all and a good teacher to those who had the privilege of being his students.

Responding on behalf of the family, Governor Abiodun said his father was a great teacher who used the teaching profession to reshape the society by producing eminent personalities who are making positive impact in the country.

He expressed his gratitude to God for granting him the grace to survive his father, whom he noted, was a humble and dedicated family man.
