Wole-Soyinka-and-daughter-Iyetade-SoyinkaPresident Goodluck Jonathan has commiserated with Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, on the death of his daughter, Iyetade Soyinka, who reportedly passed on at the University College Hospital, UCH, Ibadan, Oyo State on Sunday after a brief illness.

In a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, on Monday, President Jonathan extended “sincere condolences to Prof. Wole Soyinka and other members of the Soyinka family on the death of the Nobel laureate’s daughter, Iyetade, at the age of 48”.

He noted that Iyetade’s untimely death at such a young age must “be quite painful for Prof. Soyinka and his family”, praying that “God Almighty will comfort Prof. Soyinka and all others mourning the deceased”.

The President urged them to take solace in the “belief that Iyetade has gone away from all earthly troubles to rest for eternity in God’s bosom”.
