Jim Ibrahim: Rotimi Akeredolu’s mum, Queen Elizabeth share same righteousness, honour
Dr Jimoh Ibrahim, the APC candidate for the Ondo South Senatorial District in the upcoming general elections in 2023, sent his condolences to Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State on the occasion of the passing of his mother.

Mrs Grace Akeredolu, 90, passed away in Ibadan early on Thursday, according to news reports.

The king presumptive of England, Prince Charles of Wales, and Akeredolu received this in Ibrahim's Friday condolence message in Okitipupa regarding the passing of their moms.

The death of Queen Elizabeth II of England and Akeredolu's mother was referred to by Ibrahim as an honourable exit for the virtuous.

Ibrahim, a business mogul who recently bagged a Doctor of Business Administration degree from Judges Business School, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom, said there were great similarities in the death of the nonagenarians.

“The Queen came to the throne in 1952 and witnessed enormous social change. Likewise, our mother, Mrs Akeredolu died peacefully in her sleep early on Thursday morning at the age of 90 years.

“Both of them lived an enviable life and were known as true apostles of Christ Jesus, propagating the gospel.

“Mama Akeredolu lived a godly life. She was a leading example to up-and-coming mothers and a unique disciplinarian during her hay days.

“She was a caring mother which actually radiated till date in the lives of her children.

“We are happy that Mama Akeredolu lived till a ripe age due to the grace she received from God Almighty but in spite of this, we will still miss her.

” May the souls of the Queen and Matriarch of the Akeredolu dynasty rest in peace.

“I enjoin the king apparent of England and the grand-children and great grand-children of the Queen to take solace in the good life she lived.

“I also condole with our governor and his siblings as well as the grand-children and great grand-children to rejoice in the Lord because Mama lived to witness them rise to the peak of their individual careers,” Ibrahim said.
