“She was an asset to the APC in Nigeria and lived her life in service of humanity. We must deliver APC in elections to honour her memory because that would make her happy.

‘My prayer is that God would grant her eternal rest and forgive all her sins as she crosses to the world beyond,” she said.

The Woman Leader then condoled with the entire members of the Nelson family, Southwest APC, Lagos State government and all progressives in the country, saying that her death has created a vacuum that would be difficult to fill in the progressive family.    May her soul rest in perfect peace,  Amen.
