Until her death, she was a board member of Michael Otedola College of Education (MOCPED), Epe.

In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Lanre Lasisi the Speaker said Adeniran’s death came as a shock, because they were together a few days ago during the commissioning of projects in Surulere 1 Federal Constituency, where she supported generously at the ceremony.

He prayed for the repose of the deceased’ soul and encouraged her family, associates, Surulere constituents, APC and the Lagos State government to take solace in the knowledge that Adediran lived a fulfilled and impactful life.
