President Buhari has joined other Nigerians to mourn Mrs. Ibidun Ituah-Ighodalo, wife of Pastor Itua Ighodalo of Trinity House, who passed away today June 14.
In a statement released by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the President said he shares the pain and sorrow of the family over the sudden death and prays God’s comfort for the entire family, friends, and members of Trinity House.
He recalled that Pastor Ighodalo is one person who faithfully prays for the country, and the government, noting that he sent him a personal letter of condolence when his former Chief of Staff, Mallam Abba Kyari, passed away in April.
“Please accept my condolence. May God give you the fortitude to bear the loss, and strengthen you at this trying time,” President Buhari said in the statement
Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, took to her Twitter handle to express her disbelief to Ibidun’s death. She wrote “Life! Ibidun Ighodalo? Just gone ……. like a candle in the wind. May God comfort our very dear Pastor Ituah and rest of family in the way that only He can in Jesus name.”
Other Nigerians including Toke Makinwa, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Debola Williams and many others have taken to social media to mourn her. Read their posts below
