“The news of the passing away of our aged mother Alhaja Kudirat Dada was received with a saddened heart but we must accept it in good faith that God giveth and taketh- at will.””I have no single doubt that mama did not only lived a fulfilled life, but also a life full of impact, Godliness, and social acceptance. This is evident going by the quality and quantity of eminent people who thronged to witness her internment.””As a witness, after she had been interred, I observed with keen interest and great enthusiasm the quality of farewells, and prayers people bid her. The reminiscent and rehashing of her past while on earth by those who had lived, associated, or have one or few things to do with her was equally heart pleasing.””Therefore, i am convinced if the children takes solace from this uncommon favor, and the reality of our existence as mere mortal, they will see the demise of our great mother as a celebration of a life well spent.””I have prayed that her departure will not be known for bad, rather, it will usher new and more greatness in the life of the entire family who survived mama.””I specially condole with the Iyalaje of Ota land, High Chief Abimbola Abina, and her older brother High Chief Ganiyu Dada, the Oluwo Itoki, who as God wishes, his political ambition will conclude as the first and major testimony that our mama may no longer live in flesh, she lives on, and in good spirit with her offspring.””On behalf of myself and family, please accept our heartfelt condolences. May Almighty Allah gives you and the entire family the fortitude to bear this irreplaceable loss, and the soul of our lovely mama continues to rest in perfect peace. Amin.”Sincerely yours,Azeem Salako
