Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Doyin Ade­busuyi, Ado Ek­iti

Ek­iti State Gover­nor Kay­ode Fayemi yes­ter­day re­mem­bered his late deputy, Mrs. Fun­mi­layo Olayinka, de­scrib­ing her as a self­less woman who lived for the people.

Fayemi, who spoke at the first re­mem­brance ser­vice held at the Cathe­dral Church of Em­manuel, Ado-Ek­iti, lauded people of the state for the love they showed the late Olayinka even af­ter her demise.

Fayemi called on civil ser­vants and po­lit­i­cal of­fice hold­ers to ded­i­cate them­selves to ser­vice of the people.

Wreaths were later laid at the late deputy gover­nor’s ceno­taph by her hus­band, Mr Lanre Olayinka, her three chil­dren and wife of the gover­nor, Erelu Bisi Fayemi.

Ear­lier in his ser­mon, Ven­er­a­ble Rev­erend Bankole Olare­waju urged mem­bers of the con­gre­ga­tion to show sin­cer­ity in all their deal­ings.
