According to Ojelabi, the former Lagos state and southwest women leader would be greatly missed for the role she played in mobilising Southwest women for the party.

“It is very shocking. It came unexpectedly. It’s a terrible loss to me. It is a terrible loss to our party, the APC and indeed to Lagos state as a whole.

We pray God grant her eternal rest and give her family and the entire members of the APC in Lagos state and beyond the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.

Her death is painful. More importantly, her position as a former Southwest women leader who was at the forefront of mobilising the womenfolk for our party her death is not expected at this particular time when her services are still needed particularly that we are yearning for the presidency of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu come 2023.

It is a terrible loss but who are we to query God. He giveth and taketh at any time. I pray God grant her eternal rest” Ojelabi added.
