Farewell, Rev. Tola Oyediran

I was about stepping out of the country on Friday when I received the devastating news of the transition to higher glory of the eldest daughter of the sage, Reverend

(Mrs) Tola Oyediran who was snatched by the cold hands of death.

Rev. Oyediran was preparing for her 80th birthday on 1st December, 2020 but she didn’t make it like our Leader who left this world at 78.

Mrs Oyediran has played her part and has now departed to now be part of the Awo clan on the other side of the eternity.

I managed to have a few words with her sister Ambassador Tokunbo Awolowo Dosumu and her husband, Professor Kayode Oyediran, to share in the grief that just befell the family before travelling outside the country.

We will join in the celebration of the virtuous woman and pay the due respect to her remains. She was a worthy daughter of the great Awo.

Sleep well Rev. Tola Oyediran, and it is our prayer that God Almighty shall be with all that you have left behind.

Sleep well our beloved.
