The Nigerian nation has lost a Community Builder and detribalized woman, Mrs Oluremi Julianah Akintunde- Tiyamiyu who lived and died believing in the oneness of the nation.
Mrs Akintunde-Tiyamiyu, aged 65 was a selfless Nigerian whose amiability, selfless services and loving disposition to every Nigerian, irrespective of geographical region, religion, political persuasion or class was immeasurable. “She was indeed a detribalized Nigerian and a bridge-builder, many who knew her chorused. She was a successful trader and politician whose ideology was “live and let’s live”.
One of the children of the deseased is Armstrong Tope Akintunde, a fast rising property merchant and chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun state.
The estate development guru described the death of his mother as painful and one least expected at 65, but said that himself and his siblings have taken solace in the fact that their Mum lived an exemplary life of selfless service.
Akintunde said “my mother was until her death everything to me, in fact she was a caring, loving, accommodating mother to many residents of Ogun State particularly in Iperu where she reside. She was equally a devout Christian of Methodist Church Nigeria, a disciplinarian of the highest order. I will definitely miss her but I am comforted that she played her part well when she was with us here”.
He Prayed for the good Lord to grant her Mum eternal rest while promising he and his siblings would do all in their power to preserve her rich legacy of selflessness, accommodating spirit.
