The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State, Chief Akin Oke, on Wednesday revealed plans to receive top leaders of the party across the country as the remains of his late wife, Mrs Felicia Oke, is committed to Mother Earth on Friday.
Recalled that Mrs Oke died on April 16 at the age of 72 years.
The funeral service is slated for 11:00 am at Oke-Ado Baptist Church, Liberty Stadium Road, Oke-Ado, Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
Chief Oke and his family will host guests, who are expected to include national, regional, state and local government party leaders from across the country, to a reception at the Practice Pitch of the Obafemi Awolowo Stadium (formerly Liberty Stadium) Oke-Ado.
Oke described his wife of over 50 years as his “best friend, pillar of support and an ever-understanding soulmate.”
Without her understanding, the APC chieftain said he could not have gone far in life, particularly in politics, which he said, has afforded him the opportunity to serve his people.
The week-long burial ceremony started on Monday. The late Mrs Oke is survived by his husband, children and grandchildren.
