Toyin Ojora-Saraki, the Founder of the Wellbeing Foundation Africa and the wife of the Nigerian Senate President paid her respects to Professor Babatunde Osotimehin, who sadly passed away today.
Mrs. Saraki said: “ I have just learnt of the unbelievably sad news, that the global health community has lost my dear brother Honorable ED of UNFPA, Professor Babatunde Osotimehin.”
“In all the time since I have known Professor Babatunde, right from his time leading NACA, then as a health minister, and up until his term at UNFPA, I have always found him to be an indefatigably diplomatic and committed ally in our mutual goal of improving the conditions and outcomes of pregnant mothers, their newborns, children, adolescents, and their communities – this is indeed a shocking loss, and our hearts and prayers go out to the Osotimehin family, and the development family that is UNFPA .I offer my sincere condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.”
