He contributed greatly to the maintenance of peace, stability and mutual cooperation among members of the House of Assembly”
She prayed God to grant the Assembly members and the bereaved families the fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss.
ALSO, Esivwe Momoh. grandson of the late Prince Tony Momoh, told The Guardian in Lagos that the deceased acted like someone who had foreknowledge of his death.
“As if he knew it was time, he told us last week that he was going for spiritual check up. He took photographs with his family members in January. That was unusual,” he said.
Continuing, Esivwe said: “We spoke on Monday morning and he told us he was fine, but when we returned from work in the evening, we got the news. He trained, imparted and mentored me. He lived by example, he never spoiled us, he always tell us to be focused.”
Prince Aderemi Iyiola and his wife wrote on the condolence register: ”I missed you without any information that you are leaving us. But God Almighty knows everything. May your goodness to mankind guide your soul. Rest in peace.
Patrick Adedoyin wrote: “He was a very humble man, a man of peace that loves everybody he knows. Rest in peace. On his part, professor of Mass Communication, Idowu Shobowale said: “Nigeria has lost a giant. He gave all his best to the media industry. We pray that God should stop the spirit of sudden death among our giants. May his soul rest in peace.”
