Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State yesterday described his late mother, Chief (Mrs.) Abigail Omojolagbe Makinde, as an epitome of love and humility.

Makinde stated this while receiving the National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) led by the National Chairman, Prince Uche Sencondus, on a condolence visit to his house at Ikolaba GRA, Ibadan.

The governor expressed gratitude to the PDP NWC, noting that the fact that the leadership of the party made it to Ibadan barely 24 hours after his mother’s demise showed the love they had for him.
