Mogaji left a legacy of service, says Osun ACN
The Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), 0sun State chapter, has joined friends, sympathisers, family members and party faithful to condole with Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on the death of his mother, Alhaja Abibatu Mogaji, which sad event occurred at the weekend.
In a statement by the party's Director of Publicity, Research and Strategy, Kunle Oyatomi, made available to reporters in Osogbo yesterday, the party's Chairman, Elder Adelowo Adebiyi, said although Nigerians - especially those in the Association of Market Men and Women, would not only miss Alhaji Mogaji physically, they would also miss an indelible legacy in the quality and impact of her leadership and service delivery.
The party said she gave the country one of her kind in the person of her son, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to continue with her quality of leadership and service, which Nigeria needs to save the country from chaos and systemic collapse.
According to the party, 'the passing on of Alhaja Mogaji once again reminds us of the finite nature of our existence on this side of life; and it tells us in graphic language that whoever we are, and whatever we do, somehow, someday, it will be over.
'Whatever will be left are reminiscences of how we had lived either for good or evil, impacting people's lives or destroying them.'
The ACN leader believes 'this is the most important consideration. We are, therefore, consoled that Alhaja Mogaji left a legacy of service and selfless leadership, which changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of Nigerian men and women in the business world. It is this quality of service that we shall miss.'
The party is of the opinion that 'our seeming loss in her death, is in reality her spiritual gain; because in service to humanity, Alhaja Mogaji attained the life of triumphant that should earn her a blissful rest in Alijannah.
'To that extent, therefore, even in so-called death, she has also given us joy. That is the quintessence of her legacy.'
The ACN rejoices - in spite of her passing away - that Alhaja Mogaji lived a full life up to her dignified age of 96, 'for which we are all grateful to the Almighty Allah. May her soul rest in peace.'
