Colleagues of late theatre practitioner, Adesina Adesanya (Pastor Ajidara) have concluded plans to commit the remains of the late veteran actor to mother earth on Friday, May 26, 2017, in his, Obantoko, Abeokuta, Ogun residence. As part of his association’s plans to give him a befitting burial, artistes’ night is also slated for Thursday, May 25, 2017. This was disclosed to encomium.ng on Monday, May 8, 2017, by one of the members of the committee, Bolaji Amusan (Mr Latin).
Meanwhile, Pastor Ajidara’s family, we were also told, has fixed Friday, May 19, 2017, for the funeral of the departed actor. But efforts, encomium.ng was also told, were in progress to harmonise the arrangements.
“Tentatively, we have picked May 24, 25 and 26, 2017, for the burial, but the family had earlier fixed May 19, 2017. Although, there is no controversy at all, both parties will sit together and conclude on a particular date this evening. And that will be made public. But the way things are going, I think May 24, 25 and 26 will be accepted by both sides. All we are after is to accord Pastor Ajidara the honour he deserves. He was our governor in Ogun state as far as our association is concerned.”
Pastor Ajidara died on Saturday, May 6, 2017 at 63 after losing battle to kidney related ailment. He is survived by wife and three children, a boy and two girls…
