“No doubt the death of a loved one is usually a painful episode in our lives because it is irreparable but we must always take solace in God for a good life spent by the deceased person. We should be consoled by the fact that the late Princess Ayinde lived a fulfilling life, having impacted positively on the people that came in contact with her during her lifetime.

“She impacted many lives positively as a public officer at the Apapa Local Government Area, where she served passionately and contributed her quota to the growth and development of the local government and Lagos State.

“She was a trusted partner, friend, wife, and great supporter to her husband, Mr. Tayo Ayinde and as well as a caring and loving mother to her children.

“I pray for the repose of our dearly departed Princess Adedoyin Ayinde’s soul. God will grant her eternal rest and grant the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.”
