The APC stalwart described Hon Adegeye’s death as a painful loss and prayed for the strength to bear the loss as well as for God to grant the soul of the departed eternal rest.
Tinubu made the submission in a condolence message on Wednesday in Lagos issued on his behalf by his media aide, Mr. Tunde Rahman in which he described the deceased as a “dutiful wife and mother.”
