A member of the House of Representatives, Hon. Funke Deborah Adedoyin, is dead. She was aged 56.
Adedoyin died on Friday in Abuja after a protracted battle with cancer, one of her colleagues in the lower chamber of the National Assembly revealed.
The late lawmaker was a former Minister of Youth Development and later Minister of State for Health.
