As the House of Representatives adjourns plenary in honour of the late Hon Funke Adedoyin, who passed on recently, Speaker Yakubu Dogara has said she will be sorely missed by her colleagues.

The late Adedoyin represented Ekiti/Isin Irepodun Oke-Ero Federal Constituency  of Kwara State at the House of Representatives.

The Speaker who described her as a committed and dedicated member of the House said she contributed immensely to committee assignments, debates in plenary and other legislative issues. 

He prayed God to grant her soul eternal rest and give her family the fortitude to bear the loss.

Hon Dogara said, “We had to adjourn the sitting in order to mourn the passing of our sister and colleague, Hon. Funke Adedoyin. She was a wonderful person, as some of you journalists would attest, who contributed immensely in proceedings of the House of Representatives." 

He added: She was a committed member on the floor of the House when health challenges permitted. She was a very cerebral contributor, a very effective politician in debates and issues in the house and I cannot be more proud to have had her as a colleague and as a member of the House of Representatives.

“We will sorely miss her. At this point in time, our thoughts and prayers are with her immediate family for God to give them the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss and may her gentle soul rest in perfect peace.”

The House held special prayer in her honour and adjourned sitting to Wednesday October 10, 2018.
