A three-man emergency civil society solidarity burial committee for the mother of former President of National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Comrade Olusegun Mayegun, has appreciated the members of the civil society community and the general public for the show of love for the pro-democracy activist.
The committee in a statement issued on Tuesday urged those willing to support the former NANS President to wait until next when the funeral ceremony is scheduled to hold.
The statement signed on behalf of the trio by Comrade AWA Bamiji, named other members of the committee as Mr. Niyi Idowu and Alhaji Kola Odepeju.
The full statement reads:
This is to express our profound appreciation for the way you people rallied round our one and only Oracle (Orisa) of Nigerian Democratic Struggles and former NANS President, Comrade Olusegun Mayegun, before, during and immediately after his caring mother, Deborah Mayegun, interment, which took place in Kogi State last Friday.
We are using this medium to inform you that requests for his account number for individual and group’s donations are still coming but we need to ask the sympathisers to tarry a bit for us in order to come up with our planned arrangement for the Burial Ceremony as the last Friday’s event was just the interment, which happened within a week of passage of his mother, just to save cost of keeping her in the mortuary for long while the party takes place next year’s June at a venue to be announced later, by God’s grace.
We knock on your individual doors at our trying period and you all opened it with love, we are most humble.
When you time of celebration comes, divine solidarity will come your way from every angle.
