“She was a devout Christian, a virtuous woman, and a role model to many within and outside her community”, the statement partly read.

It also indicated that the burial has been scheduled for Tuesday, 16 February 2024, adding that the details of the funeral rites would be announced by the family.

President Tinubu urged Jonathan to take solace in the legacy of Amissi, who dedicated her life to the service of God and humanity.

Also, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Abbas Tajudeen, commiserated with Jonathan over the death of his elder sister.

In a statement on Friday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Musa Krishi described as painful the death of the septuagenarian noting that the late Madam Obebhatein would be remembered for her dedication and sacrifice to mankind.

Speaker Abbas urged ex-President Jonathan to take solace in the fact that Madam Obebhatein, aged 70, lived a fulfilling and impactful life as a teacher, businesswoman, and Christian leader in her lifetime.
