Senator representing Kaduna Central senatorial district, Shehu Sani yesterday visited the residence of Kaduna based veteran Vanguard photojournalist, Chief Olu Ajayi and commiserated with him over the death of his wife Mrs. Roseline Ajayi.
Late Mrs. Ajayi died on Saturday at a Kaduna hospital after a brief illness.
According to the Senator who was accompanied by two of his aides, Suleiman Ahmed and Chima Abdulsamad Amadi, the news of the death of Mrs. Ajayi came to him as a rude shock.
In his condolence remarks to Chief Ajayi and his family, the Senator said, “I am here on behalf of my family, Kaduna Central district to condole you and your family over the death of your wife. The news came as a rude shock.
“Her death is a loss to all who know you. Loss of a wife is a very big tragedy. Our consolation is that she lived and accomplished her life as a mother, friend and companion, dying serving her God. She stood by you during all the trying periods. This is a phase you are passing through now.
“As men of faith, life is temporal. We are here to serve our God and humanity and we leave this world not when we wish but as destined by God. All we should do while alive is to live a good name to be remembered for when we are no more. Am pained by this loss because wives are pillars of the home.
“She will continue to be with you forever in spirit. God will continue to support and strengthen your spirit. I prayed God to console the family. She is now immortal and as mortal beings, let’s continue to pray for her soul. From the dust we were created and to dust we shall return.”
