The Wife of former governor of Osun State, and a national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chief Bisi Akande, Mrs Omowumi Akande has died.
 
It was gathered that the late Omowumi Akande died today after brief illness. She died today at the University College Hospital in Ibadan. She was aged 73.
 
The cause of death has not been revealed by the family. Omowunmi and Bisi Akande got married 51 years ago, with the marriage blessed with several children.
 
“For about 48 years now that I have gotten married, I am still with my wife,” Akande said in 2014. He eulogized his wife as the best woman any man could pray to have.
 
“In our marriage we agreed to live together no matter what the condition is. Except for when I was in the prison, we have always been together and we will always be.
 
“What has kept us this far is that from the beginning, we take ourselves not just as husband and wife but also as brother and sister. We do everything together; we love each other, take care of the children together and spend money together,” he said.
 
Among the children of the couple are Dr. Wuraola Solabi who got married in June this year in Ibadan and Osun state commissioner for health, Dr Temitope Ilori.
 
Abdukareem Adebisi Bamdele Akande, 78 was a governor of Osun State, Nigeria from 1999–2003, as a member of the Alliance for Democracy party, and was the first interim Chairman of the All Progressives Congress. 
 
He is a close political ally of a former Lagos State governor and political heavyweight, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
