President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has commiserated with the Senator representing Ondo Central Senatorial District, Tayo Alasoadura, over the death of his wife, Mrs. Adetayo Alasoadura, on Thursday.
Saraki, who led a Senate delegation on a condolence visit to Alasoadura’s residence in Akure, on Friday, said the Senator’s wife left at a time her services as a mother and dutiful wife were needed most.
Other on the team included Senate Leader Ali Ndume, Senator Baba Kaka Garbai (Borno Central), and Senator Barau Jibrin (Kano North).
In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Yusuph Olaniyonu, the Senate President described Mrs. Alasoadura’s sudden death as both a huge shock and a big loss to the entire Senate. He urged the Senator and his entire family to take solace in the exemplary character of the deceased while she was alive.
According to Saraki, “For the short time which our colleague has spent in the Senate, we feel his leadership roles and know that this is a big shock to him and the Senate at large. We all desire that she be alive even now to continue to play her supportive and motherly role in this family, but we cannot question God for calling her home because He alone knows and owns all things.
“However her life of exemplary service to this family in particular and humanity in general will remain indelible in our hearts and I want this to be your consolation.”
