How She  Slumped and Died, While Attending Service In Church This Morning


Few people get to transit from being utterly indispensable to “eternally unforgettable.” A real mother does. And if she is some mother-in-law to treasure, she may be succeeded but she can never be replaced. Nigeria’s boardroom matriarch and woman of many firsts, Chief (Mrs) Olutoyin Olusola Olakunrin, is dead.

Olakunrin was the mother of Derin Agbaje, the wife of Segun Agbaje, the Managing Director of GT Bank.

We gathered that the veteran corporate Amazon died at 11:30am today, Sunday, 3 June, 2018, in Lagos. She was aged 80. Sources disclosed that the Gbagura, Abeokuta, Ogunbanjo State, born corporate titan slumped this morning, while attending a service at her church, St Paul Anglican Church, Breadfruit, Lagos. She was rushed to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

It will be recalled that Mama Olakunrin celebrated her 80th birthday last November, with family and friends at a high-profile thanksgiving at St. Paul Anglican Church, Breadfruit, Lagos.

A woman of many firsts, Olakunrin was one of Nigeria’s most celebrated standard icons. She was Africa’s first female chartered accountant. Her intellectual capacity stood her out among her contemporaries-both male or female. She also served as the chairman of Education Trust Fund; and was a past president of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN).

Olakunrin was the former president of the Society of Women Accountants in Nigeria (SWAN) She was involved in auditing account of major’s organizations. -THEELITES
