Atiku Condoles With Odukoya’s Family Over Nomthi’s Death

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has condoled with the Odukoya’s family over the demise of their mother and wife, Nomthi Odukoya.

Nomthi, wife of the senior pastor of Fountain of Life Church, Taiwo Odukoya, died on Tuesday after a two-year battle with cancer.

Taking to his verified Twitter page on Wednesday, Atiku expressed his condolences to Odukoya’s family and prayed for the repose of her soul.

Atiku tweeted, “I am profoundly saddened by the death of Pastor Nomthi Odukoya, the wife of senior pastor, Pastor Taiwo Odukoya, of The Fountain of Life Church. On behalf of my family, I express my deepest condolences to the Odukoya family, friends, and loved ones and pray that her soul finds a gentle repose.”

This comes shortly after the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari, also sent a condolence message to Pastor Taiwo over his wife’s death.

Buhari, who described the loss as “sad and quite touching”, condoled with the church and the Christian community, as he prayed for God to give them the fortitude to bear the loss.

Odukoya, got married to Nomthi in 2010 after the death of his first wife, Bimbo, in the 2005 Sosoliso plane crash.

Nomthi, in her 11 years of marrying the cleric, had two sons for him: Jomiloju and Timilehin Odukoya.
