The Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, has reacted to the death of Senator Dino Melaye’s mother, Comfort Melaye.
The lawmaker representing Kogi West at the National Assembly had Thursday night announced the death of his mother.
The Governor, in a condolence message signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Onogwu Muhammed, on Friday, described the news of Deaconess Melaye’s death as “a rude shock and great loss not only to Kogi State but Nigeria in general, given her invaluable contributions to the cause of humanity”.
He said Deaconess Melaye was “a quintessential mother, devout Christian and community leader who devoted her lifetime to the service of God and humanity.
Bello said, “I received with shock, news of the passing of your mother, Deaconess Comfort Melaye.
“Words are insufficient to condole one on a mother’s death, but I do urge you to take solace in the life that she lived.
“I have no doubt that mama’s impact and reach will continue to be felt through her offspring.
“On behalf of the Great People of Kogi State, my family and myself, I offer you our deep condolences while praying the Almighty God to grant you and the rest of the Melaye family the grace to endure this irreparable loss. “Do keep us notified of funeral plans.”
