He prayed that God will grant her soul eternal rest and give her family the fortitude to bear the loss. Dogara said: "We had to adjourn the Sitting in order to mourn the passing of our sister and colleague, Hon. Funke Adedoyin.

"She was a wonderful person, as some of you journalists would attest, who contributed immensely in the proceedings of the House of Representatives. She was a committed member on the floor of the House when health challenges permitted.

"She was a very cerebral contributor, a very effective politician in debates and issues in the House and I cannot be more proud to have had her as a colleague and as a member of the House of Representatives.

"We will sorely miss her. At this point in time, our thoughts and prayers are with her immediate family for God to give them the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss and may her gentle soul rest in peace."

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the House held special prayer in her honour and had adjourned sitting to Wednesday October 10.
