Press Release

Mr Dipo Aka-Bashorun

On behalf of my family and the Nigeria Labour Congress , I write to condole the family on the passing on of the matriarch, Mrs Kudirat Aka-Bashorun.

Her departure at 75 is a big blow not only to the immediate family but the entire Labour Movement to which the Aka-Bashorun family gave their all.

Like her late husband, Mrs Kudirat Aka-Bashorun was an activist and a dogged fighter who sacrificed her class and personal comfort for the upliftment and freedom of the downtrodden.

A woman of immense beauty, character and brilliance (like her husband), Mrs Kudirat was an inspiration to generations of activists, especially women.

Quiet, firm and principled, she left no one in doubt about her foremost mission on earth. We have lost an irreplaceable gem.

Our hearts are with you, the entire family and friends in this moment of grief. We however, urge you to take solace in the fact that she has run her race and has gone to be with her creator.

We love her but God loves her more and has called her home. Once again, please do accept our sincere condolences.

For and on behalf of the Nigeria Labour Congress:

Ayuba Wabba, mni
