Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has sympathised with families of the late sage Chief Obafemi Awolowo and Professor A.B Oyediran over the loss of their daughter and wife, the late Reverend Tola Oyediran who died on Friday at the age of 79.

Sanwo-Olu, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile described the death of the former matriarch of the Awolowo dynasty as shocking and a great loss to her family, friends, associates, management and staff of Tribune newspapers.
