Fayemi mourns Ibidunni Ighodalo


Gov. Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti has commiserated with the Founder and Senior Pastor of Trinity House, Pastor Itua Ighodalo, on the death of his wife, Ibidunni.

The governor in a statement issued on Tuesday in Ado-Ekiti by his Chief Press Secretary, Olayinka Oyebode, described the death of Ibidunni as very shocking and heart-rending.

Fayemi said that though the late Ibidunni died in her prime, she made a remarkable impact on the lives of people, especially couples she provided assistance for through her non-profit organization established to raise awareness on infertility.

According to the governor, the deceased’s foundation provided grants for couples that require fertility treatments and IVF as a way of helping them have gone through a similar experience.

He said Ibidunni, who won the Miss Lux beauty pageant about 22 years ago, was not just a celebrity but a humanist who believed in helping the less privileged, especially women.

The governor said the deceased would be sorely missed for her remarkable contributions to the society, especially as a pillar of support to the ministry of her husband and as one who provided succor to several women who had issues with childbearing.

“The late Ibidunni brought a touch of beauty and excellence to bear on every assignment and venture she undertook, raised, and nurtured an army of young Christian women ready to do exploits for God’s kingdom.

“She fought a good fight of faith and lived an exemplary life as a believer, pastor’s wife, and entrepreneur. We are saddened by her sudden departure but submit to the will of the Almighty God who gives and takes.

“On behalf of my wife, Bisi, the government and good people of Ekiti State, I commiserate with my dear brother and friend, Pastor Itua Ighodalo over this irreparable loss and urge him to be consoled by the fact that his wife lived an impactful life and has only gone to rest at the bosom of the Lord.

“Our prayer is that God will comfort and uphold the entire family as well as members of the Trinity House and her mentees and grant the deceased eternal rest,” he added.
