Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has commiserated with Senator Dino Melaye over the death of his mother, Comfort.
In a statement on Friday by the party’s spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP said it was grieved by the loss.
The statement said: “The PDP family is grieved by this sad event, particularly given Deaconess Melaye’s role as a devout Christian and a community leader, who lived as a source of inspiration and nurturing for younger generation of leaders.
“Though we mourn, we take solace in the fact that Deaconess Melaye lived a fulfilled life and bequeathed to our dear nation, as well as our great party, the PDP, a patriot, quintessential democrat and true leader in Senator Melaye.
“The PDP therefore condoles with the Melaye family, the Apostolic Church and the people of Kogi state and prays God to grant them the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.”
Senator Melaye had earlier announced the passage of his mother in a tweet, when he wrote: The lawmaker announced her passage on Twitter early Friday.
“With total submission to the will of the Almighty God, I on behalf of the Melaye’s announce the passing into Glory of our beloved mother. Deconess Comfort Melaye. We thank God for Godly life she lived. I love you my mother and Friend. We shall surely meet again.”
