Tuesday, 16th July 2019 would remain a day filled with so much joy and gratitude to God for the families and children of late Madam Aduke Popoola(Nee Oyeyebi) as it marks the 10th year remembrance since she passed on to glory. It is the desire and prayer of any child to live long enough to bury their parents in their ripe old age and that is the testimony of Yeye Atinuke Anike Abioro and siblings.
On that day, Magodo bubbled, as Yeye Atinuke Abioro threw a grand remembrance party for her mum. Joy filled her face that she lived enough to celebrate 10 years after her mum’s passing on.
The Tyttlo Events Centre, along C.M.D Road, Magodo G.R.A Phase 2 was filled to capacity, as top society women stormed the party.
