“Sad events like this point us as mortals to the finality and absoluteness of God’s decision over our lives. We cannot question whatever God decides, but the death of our brother, a shining star and amiable individual with bright ideas and future leaves us with heavy hearts.”
“I urge the family to take heart and take solace in God who giveth and taketh, while also calling on our people to remember our Baba, the Soun of Ogbomosoland and the families Pastor Olumide left behind in their prayers.”
The governor stated that the demise of Oyewumi at the age of 45 left him feeling sad but it won’t be in the place of mere mortals to question God.
Until the death of the deceased, he was the Chief Accountant at the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso.
