Former Lagos Education Commissioner, Dr Olawale Idris is Dead by fabinfos(f): 7:02am On Aug 31, 2018
Ex-Lagos State Commissioner for Education, Dr Olawale Idris is dead.

Dr Idris lost his battle to stroke at the age of 78 at his family home in Lekki Lagos on Thursday the 30th of August 2018.

The deceased was appointed Commissioner for Education by the first civilian Governor of Lagos State, Alhaji Lateef Jakande in 1979 and was charged with the implementation of the UPN administration’s priority programme — free and compulsory education at all levels in Lagos State.

Here is what his widow, Muyinat told PM News on phone about his death in an emotion laden manner:

“I can’t believe that my husband is gone, we are still together in the early hours of today and I never knew he was going to leave me for eternity.

“My husband is 78 years old and we have been planning big for his 80th birthday; I never knew he won’t wait till then.

“I am speechless, I don’t know what to say again but I will surely miss him”.

You don't have to insult someone simply for pointing out the obvious.
