Listen to article

The Ondo State Governor, Dr Olusegun Mimiko on Wednesday expressed shock over the death of the wife of his fellow Comrade Governor, Mr. Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State. Mimiko, who on hearing of the passage of the woman on Tuesday evening had placed a personal call to his Edo State counterpart, in a release issued on his behalf by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Kolawole Olabisi in Akure described the death of Mrs. Clara Oshiomhole, who he described as 'our wife' as a sad loss and condoled the Governor, the entire Oshiomhole family and the people of Edo State over the unfortunate incident.

  'Our hearts go out to our brother and colleague, Comrade Governor Adams Oshiomhole at these dark hours following the demise of his darling wife and soul mate, Mrs. Clara Oshiomhole. We also commiserate with the entire people of Edo State, the Oshiomhole family and the children of the late Amason who stood by her husband in his struggle first for the emancipation and betterment of the nation's workforce and later for the liberation of the people of Edo State from those who foisted themselves on the people by sheer brigandage. ' In all these times, which were no doubt, turbulent and full of anxieties, the late Amason stood by her husband like the biblical rock of Gibraltar. It is sad that she had to bow to the cold hands of death now.

  'But we are consoled by the fact that the ideals for which she laboured for alongside her husband and other patriots manifested in her life time and will live on as an enduring legacy in her memory.

  'On behalf of the entire good people of Ondo State and my family, I mourn with my brother Comrade Governor at this sad time and I pray that God will give him the strength to continue to forge on with his fabled vigour as he takes Edo State to greater heights. Please accept our heartfelt sympathy,' Mimiko stated.
