Obasa described the death of the politician as a huge loss to Lagos state, the party she served with so much passion and enthusiasm, members of the party and the country.

The speaker said the shock was indescribable, adding that her death was a huge and painful one that would be difficult to heal for a long time.

“Indeed, we lost a very bright light that had always brought the desired radiance to our party.

“Nelson was a coordinator of women and she carried out her tasks with so much ease, enthusiasm and effectiveness to the admiration of everyone of us.

“She never hid her passion for a better Lagos and Nigeria through democratic governance.

She was diligent and excelled in every position or committee she found herself.

“While I, like many others she held in high esteem will personally miss her; I pray that God would strengthen every member of her family, her friends, associates, those she mentored, the GAC and our party,” he said.

NAN recalls that Nelson was also a former Executive Director, Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) and a senatorial candidate in 1992.
