A recently promoted permanent secretary in Ogun State civil service Mrs Betty Olubunmi Odumusi, has died.
The late Odumusi, who died in the early hours of yesterday, was one of the 14 newly appointed permanent secretaries in the state civil service who were sworn into office on Thursday, September 1.
She died within 24 hours after being sworn in.
A career civil servant, described by colleagues as “hardworking, conscientious and dedicated,” the late Odumusi had served the Ogun State government for 31 years before her death, aged 57.
Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, while commiserating with the Odumusi family, prayed for the repose of the soul of the departed.
The governor also prayed that the good Lord grants the husband of the deceased, her children and colleagues she left behind in the state civil service “the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.”
