"Hon. Adetoun Adediran is leaving behind fond memories of her roles as a lawmaker in the emergence of a more modern Lagos.
"As a principal officer at the House, she was passionate and active making sure her voice was heard among her colleagues who were mostly men.
"It was this same passion for service that got her the position of Women Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos. She also later became the Chairman of the Lagos State Building and Investment Company.
"We mourn her demise as it came at a time her experience and wisdom were still desired for the progress of our state. We mourn because death has snatched one of our finest politicians.
"While I pray that God grant her a peaceful rest, I also pray that he strengthens those she left behind and give them the fortitude to bear this huge loss."
