“Princess Ogunsanya made considerable contributions to the growth and development of Lagos. As Secretary to the State Government in the first term of Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola SAN, she discharged herself well.

“The people of Lagos State, particularly the Ikorodu community have lost a worthy daughter. I know she would never be forgotten in a hurry.

“My condolences to the Adeniran Ogunsanya family, Governor Babajide Sanwo-olu, the people of Ikorodu and Lagos State. I pray that her soul find eternal rest. Amen.” Tinubu, said in a condolence statement issued by his media office and signed by Mr. Tunde Rahman.
