The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, on Friday, joined other eminent Nigerians to pay last tribute to late Mrs. Maria Oredola Igbinedion, mother of former Edo State Governor, Chief Lucky Igbinedion.

Guests at the funeral mass held at St. Austin Catholic Church, Benin City include former Military Governor of Bendel State, Sen. Tunde Ogbeha; former Governor of Delta State, Chief James Ibori and former Governor of Kano State, Sen. Rabiu Kwankwaso.

Others are former Senate President, Pius Ayim Pius; former Imo State Governor, Achike Udenwa; former Edo State Deputy Governor, Mike Oghiadomhe and Sen. Matthew Urhoghide, among others.

Obaseki, who commiserated with the former governor, extolled the exemplary life of late Mrs. Maria Oredola Igbinedion, noting that she lived a fulfilled life, in service to God and humanity.

Earlier in his homily, Rev. Fr. Moses said late Maria Igbinedion exuded uncommon love and impacted positively on those who crossed her path while she was alive.

The clergy noted, “Mama is an embodiment of love, care, and spirituality. She is a loving person full of life and love. Mama is charitable and has touched the lives of people positively.”

On his part, Lucky Igbinedion thanked the governor and other guests for their presence, adding, “I thank everyone that is here to celebrate her life. It is heartbreaking but we are not broken.”
