The late Mrs. Olayinka is an indigene of Ado-Ekiti.
The deputy governor died of cancer on April 6 at St. Nicholas Hospital, Lagos. She was 52.
The Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Mr. Tayo Ekundayo, told reporters yesterday that the week-long funeral activities will begin on Monday with a service of songs at De-Haven in Lagos.
The commissioner said the decision to bury Mrs. Olayinka in Ado-Ekiti was “reached after a series of meetings with various stakeholders in the matter”.
He said the stakeholders include the Ewi of Ado-Ekiti, Oba Adeyemo Adejugbe; the Ewi-in-Council and the deceased’s family.
Activities lined up for the funeral include a parliamentary session, an executive session, a candle-light procession, a service of songs, a commendation service and a vigil, among others.
Ekundayo said: “There is a committee in place to organise her funeral. It will decide where the deputy governor’s remains would be interred in the state capital.”
