We will miss Rodipe’s honesty, integrity, says Abiodun
Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, has admonished Nigerians to live an impactful life that would be a reference after their demise.
The governor stated this in Ijebu-Ode yesterday during the burial of former Chairman of Ijebu-Ode Local Council and a renowned industrialist and forester, Chief Bisi Rodipe, who died in the early hours of the day.
Abiodun, who noted that the late Rodipe was a principled and upright man, said he was known for his integrity in his dealings with members of his community.
The governor, therefore, charged Nigerians to think of how they would be remembered after their demise, saying that Rodipe lived a life worthy of emulation.
Also, Abiodun paid a condolence visit to the family of Adebutu over the death of their matriarch, Dame Caroline Oladuni Adebutu, who died at the age of 83.
The governor, who spoke at the family house in Iperu-Remo, described the death of the first wife of a business mogul, Sir Kessington Adebutu, as painful and loss of a rare gem, who dedicated her life to her family, as well as service to humanity and God.
Abiodun, while urging the Adebutu family not to grief but rejoice in the Lord that Madam Adebutu lived a life worthy of emulation, prayed that God should grant the soul of the departed eternal rest.
He further prayed that God should grant the family fortitude to bear the loss.
