Senator Ben Bruce took time out of his busy schedule on Friday to pay condolence visit to Awolowo’s family in Ikene, Ogun State on the demise of the wife of the late sage, Chief (Mrs) HID Awolowo.
Bruce was in the company of the business mogul, Oba Otudeko. Earlier in the week, Bruce had described the death of the matriarch as a big loss to Nigeria.
He said, “We have lost part of our history and I hope that the generation to come will value the freedom and democracy that HID and her husband gave to this country.”
Chief Mrs HID Awolowo, died on Saturday at the age of 99 and would be buried in November.
