“It was my lowest moment,” Ambassador Eniola Ajayi says of her 27-year-old daughter’s death while her father was being buried.

Dr. Eniola Olairan Ajayi, Nigeria’s Ambassador to the Netherlands, has said that losing her daughter was the lowest point in her life.

Oluwadolapo Oluwadamilola Ajayi, her 27-year-old daughter, died on April 20, 2018, at Iyin-Ekiti, Ekiti State, while attending the burial rites of her 98-year-old grandfather.

She had flown in from the US for the funeral and was claimed to have suffered a headache during the service.

She was sent to a private hospital and died of a ruptured brain aneurysm.

In an interview with Punch, the envoy stated her beloved daughter’s death was the lowest point of her life.

Read what she said below;

“My lowest moment was losing my first daughter. My highest moments were those times when people believing God for a child got pregnant after many years of waiting. The more personal one is seeing the grandchildren of my father— a retired school teacher— graduate from different Ivy League universities around the world,”

On how she has been coping with the loss, Ambassador Ajayi explained,

“I listen a lot to worship songs. It has not been easy at all. I just focus on my service to God, my other children, work and service to humanity. I am just coming to terms with the fact that she is not coming back.

“She led such a beautiful and impactful life that it is simply impossible to forget her. There is no day since April 20, 2018, that I don’t remember her. I take consolation in the fact that I will see her again but in the meantime, I will not whisper her name– Oluwadolapo Ajayi.”
