In his lifetime, former Ogun 1st Lady, Dr. Mrs. Olufunso Amosun was one of those who were close to the late Primate (Dr.) Emmanuel Omolaja Olorunwo and his wife.
He used to calls her My Daughter or at times, Moremi, her title.
She still saw him a few days before Papa passed on, as she wrote in her short tribute in honour of Baba Olorunwo. Read the full text of her tribute:
A Tribute To Primate (Dr.) Emmanuel Omolaja Olorunwo
This tribute is one that I did not expect to write at this time, and so, it is with mixed feelings that I write these few words on the passage of Primate (Dr.) Emmanuel Omolaja Olorunwo, who answered the call on Thursday, 2nd September 2021, precisely four days after he celebrated his 85th Birthday.
Baba Olorunwo, as I fondly called him, welcomed me warmly on Sunday, 29th August 2021, when I joined the Olorunwo family for a special thanksgiving service to commemorate the 85th birthday of Primate Olorunwo. I never knew that the occasion would be my last encounter with Baba Olorunwo. I still recall every bit of his activities on the day of thanksgiving, I did not know that the Primate was using the occasion to bid all of us present a farewell.
Since our paths crossed many years ago, Baba Olorunwo had proven to be a true father. His kindness and unfettered love for me and my husband were unparalleled. We will miss his prayers, counselling, mentorship, and fatherly disposition.
May God comfort Mama, the children and other family members that he left behind. May the good Lord also grant Baba Olorunwo eternal rest.
Dr. Mrs. Olufunso Amosun
