The late Oyediran, according to the Governor was an embodiment of love, integrity, courage compassion and piety; virtues that defined her inter-personal relationships in her lifetime

“Mrs Oyediran radiated love, warmth and was a mother figure not only to members of the Awolowo dynasty but everyone that came her way.
