Lai Mohammed condoles with Oyedepo over wife’s death

Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has condoled with Dr Hezekiah Oyedepo over the death of his wife and General Manager of the National Theatre, Dr Stella Oyedepo.

Mohammed led a team of government officials to the Oyedepo residence in Ilorin on Friday.

Oyedepo died in an accident on Easter Monday on her way to Lagos.

“I am here with the top management of the ministry to condole with you on the tragic and sad loss of one of the CEOs of one of our parastatals, the National Theatre.

“The late Dr Stella Oyedepo was a colleague, a friend, a woman who had infected us with her enthusiasm about positive attitude about life.

“We were all shocked when we heard the news of her death, but we must accept that God has destined it to happen.

“In the one year she spent as the CEO of the National Theatre, we will continue to remember her enthusiasm, passion and resolute decision to move the establishment to greater heights.

“When the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Culture, Sen. Fatima Raji-Rasaki, called me yesterday, it was the infectious and passionate nature of Dr Oyedepo that struck her most,” Mohammed said.

The deceased’s husband thanked the minister and his team for the condolence visit.

Senior pastor of Living Faith Church Worldwide, David Oyedepo, came in while the team was praying with the family.

The clergyman, who is a cousin of the deceased’s husband, also offered prayers for all.
