Former Defence Minister Gen. Theophilus Danjuma (retd.) declared yesterday in Ikenne, Ogun State that the late Chief HID Awolowo was his and his wife, Daisy’s adopted mother.
The billionaire ex-minister said the consolation he got from her death is that she departed with dignity.
“My wife Daisy and I were adopted by Mama some 10 years ago. We still miss her loving maternal guidance.
“Severally mama was a remarkable woman who refined her faculty to the very end of her long life. She departed with dignity and majesty. May mama’s soul rest in perfect peace”, Danjuma told reporters at the Awolowos’ residence after paying a condolence visit.
