On behalf of Governing Council, Management, Staff and Students of Kogi State Polytechnic, Lokoja, I wish to commiserate with the Speaker, Kogi State House of Assembly, Rt. Honourable Matthew Kolawole, over the shocking demise of his wife, Mrs Esther Kolawole.

A wife occupies an important place in a man’s life, a bond so strong that we treat our wives like our own flesh and blood; hence, it can be so traumatic losing such bond in a most shocking manner.

Our hearts, therefore go out to the Rt. Honourable Speaker and his immediate family at this emotionally trying moment.

Since death is inevitable and we are powerless against the will of God, the best we can do at this moment is to pray for the deceased and commiserate with our brother, the Honourable Speaker.

It is our earnest prayer that the soul of Mrs Esther Kolawole rest in peace, and that God grant Rt. Honourable Matthew Kolawole, his family and the entire people of Kabba/Bunu Local Government the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss (Amen!)
