The Lagos State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress has commiserated with the party elder and member of the Governance Advisory Council, Prince Oluyole Olusi, over the death of his wife, Alhaja Mariam Iyabo Olusi.
In a letter issued by the Publicity Secretary of the APC, Seye Oladejo, the Chairman of the party, Pastor Cornelius Ojelabi, described the late Mrs Olusi, as “a dutiful wife and affectionate mother of promising children, who was a pillar behind her illustrious husband throughout his political career.”
According to Mr Ojelabi, the deceased lived a long life, devoid of controversy, saying that she was “a mentor and role model for women folk in love, duty, compassion and commitment to moral values.”
The chairman said, “In the course of life laced with some thorns, she bore the occasional vicissitudes with uncommon courage, calmness and superlative understanding.”
Ojelabi however condoled with the Pa Olusi, lamenting that he has lost a life companion, whose place in the Matiku Sanusi Olusi family cannot be filled.
The chairman also commiserated with the sons of the deceased, Adetoyese and Sola, who are both chieftains of the ruling party.
Ojelabi urged the two political figures to take solace in the fact that their beloved mother left behind, the legacies of good virtues at the family level and in society.
Late Mrs. Olusi, died on Saturday, October 14, 2023, at the age of 77.
The deceased son, Adetoyese Olusi, is the current Chairman of the Lagos Island Council.
