A member of the Governor’s Advisory Council (GAC), the highest decision-making body in the Lagos chapter of the All Progressives Congress, Tajudeen Olusi has lost his wife Mariam.

Mrs. Olusi, mother of chairman of Lagos Island Council Adetoyese Olusi, died on Saturday aged 77.

Lagos APC chairman Pastor Cornelius Ojelabi described the late matriarch as a dutiful wife and affectionate mother of promising children, who was a pillar behind her illustrious husband throughout his political career.

Ojelabi, in a statement by the party’s publicity secretary, Seye Oladejo, observed that the deceased led a long life devoid of controversy, adding that she was a mentor and role model for the womenfolk in love, duty, compassion and commitment to moral values.

He said in the course of life laced with some thorns, she bore the occasional vicissitudes with uncommon courage, calmness and superlative understanding.

Ojelabi condoled with the widower, Pa Olusi, lamenting that he has lost a life companion, whose place in the Matiku Sanusi Olusi family cannot be filled.

He also commiserated with the sons, Adetoyese and Sola, both chieftains of the ruling party, urging them to take solace in the fact that their beloved mother left behind the legacies of good virtues at the family level and in the society.

Ojelabi added:”I received with shock the death of our amiable mother, Mama Mariam Iyabo Olusi, wife of our great party leader, Papa Prince Tajudeen Olusi.

“She was a devoted wife and pillar of her husband successful exploits in politics, government, community commitment and religious involvement.

“Our leader has lost a life companion and most invaluable supporter. But, we take solace in her worthwhile existence and election of legacies of love, compassion and duty before her transition. May her soul rest in peace.”
