The two-time ex-governor of the state explained that the entire household of Igbinedion has no reason to mourn their departed mother because she led a fulfilled life and that she is in better place with her maker. “We are heartbroken but we are not grieving because we know she lived a good life. And I will not say much about her because Fr. Moses has captured everything eloquently.

“So, I sincerely want to thank Fr. Moses for his eloquent homily on mama and what she truly stood for. “I know she is in a better place as we speak. So, on behalf of our patriarch and the children of the House of Igbinedion, we sincerely want to thank you”, Igbinedion said.
