Ondo state Governor, Dr Olusegun Mimiko has described as untimely and shocking, the death at the weekend, of Mrs Abiodun Ibitola, the Managing Director of Akure based Remdel Optimum Communication and wife of former Editor of Sunday Punch, Mr Remi Ibitola.
In a message issued by the Commissioner for Information, Kayode Akinmade, condoling with the family of the late communicator who made her mark in broadcasting, music production and film making, Governor Mimiko said her death came to him as a rude shock because “no one would have envisaged that the intelligent and brilliant broadcaster would leave us so suddenly”
He said the late Abiodun Ibitola was a model and a peculiar professional who respected and adhered to the ethics of her profession strictly, thus distinguishing her among her peers.
“Though it is unfortunate you had to leave with much of the potentials in you yet untapped, but we are grateful to God that the little you were able to do will stand as evidence of your hard work, ingenuity and love for humanity.
“No doubt you were able to make a mark in your chosen profession and generations to come would always have something to cherish you for” Mimiko said.
Urging the husband to take “the development as a Christian that you are” Governor Mimiko prayed that God will give the deceased colleagues, media, associates and her entire family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
