The Special Advisor for Africa, International Hospital Federation (IHF), Dr. Leke Pitan, has commiserated with the Awolowo family over the passing on of the matriarch of the family, Chief Mrs. HID Awolowo, saying she deserved to be celebrated in all ways possible.

Pitan stated this in a press release signed by his Media Aide, Afolayan Adebiyi, stressing that he was glad that the late stateswoman’s place in history is assured, and “she lived well for humanity”.

The former Lagos State Commissioner for Health and Education was full of admiration for HID’s strength of character and wisdom in all her dealings since the struggle for independence and through the political crises of the 1960s, even up till the time of her demise.

“Mama admirably stood by the late sage, Papa Obafemi Awolowo through the thick and thin of his political career. This must have invariably led Papa to label her ‘Jewel of inestimable value’,” he said.
