“Arotile should be immortalised”: Kogi Lawmakers calls on state government

The Kogi House of Assembly has called on the state government to immortalise the late Flying Officer, Tolulope Arotile.

The call was contained in a motion moved by the member representing Ijumu Constituency, Kilani Olumo, at plenary on Thursday.

Olumo said the deceased pilot had contributed her quota to the ongoing fight against insecurity in the country.

He noted that her death is painful and a great loss to the state, pointing out that immortalising her is a reward for her hard work and dedication to the protection of the nation’s territorial integrity.

Seconding the motion, the member representing Lokoja One Constituency, Umar Tenimu described the motion as timely in view of the efforts of the late combat pilot to the nation’s security efforts.

The Speaker, Matthew Kolawole, in his ruling, called on the state government to urgently immortalise the young icon.

A minute silence was observed in honour of the late first female combatant helicopter pilot.
