A former Southwest Zonal Women Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Kemi Nelson is dead.

The Chief Press Secretary to Lagos State Governor, Gboyega Akosile, announced it in a tweet, @gboyegaakosile, on Sunday following her demise at 66.

“We lost a dear soul to the cold hands of death earlier today. May the soul of the late Chief Mrs Kemi Nelson, former Southwest Women Leader of the @OfficialAPCNg,” Akosule tweeted.

He prayed that she “Rest In Peace and may God grant her immediate family, friends and associates the fortitude to bear this loss.”

Meanwhile, the state governor Babajise Sanwo-Olu’s Senior Special Assistant on New Media, Jubril Gawat, also mourned Nelson, 66, on Twitter.

Sharing an old post, Gawat said, “The day I posted this, Our Big Mummy, Yeye Kemi Nelson called me and said, ‘I saw your tweet and I replied, most people don’t know how we suffered for Lagos to be what it is today.

“I replied, ‘we will keep telling them ma’. I guess the Nigeria stylish ‘Goodbye’. Goodnight Ma.”

Nelson was a close ally of the APC presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu. She was a former Executive Director of the NIgeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) and Lagos politician and socialite.
