“Alhaja was not just a wife and mother, but a soulmate and a strong support for our leader, Prince Tajudeen Olusi. She epitomized humility, compassion, and embodied the essence of motherhood in the Olusi Royal dynasty. She was supportive of everyone who came into contact with her during her lifetime.
“It is a profound loss for the Olusi family, but we must remember what Allah says in the Holy Quran: ‘Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un’… ‘Indeed, we belong to Allah, and indeed, to Him we return.’
“On behalf of my dear wife, Ibijoke, leaders, executives, and members of our great party, the All Progressives Congress, as well as the good people and Government of Lagos State, I commiserate with our leader, Alhaji Prince Tajudeen Oluyole Olusi on the demise of his beloved wife, Alhaja Mariam Iyabo Olusi.
“I pray that the Almighty Allah grants Mama Aljannah Firdaus and grants the family the fortitude to bear the irreparable.” Sanwo-Olu said.
