Toke Makinwa’s ex-husband Maje Ayida has lost his father, Allison Ayida.
Allison Ayida died at the age of 88. He died on Thursday, October 11, 2018, at Saint Nicholas Hospital in Lagos state. He grew to the top of the civil service and was famed as a super permanent secretary.
Born on 16th June of 1930, Ayida attended Kings College, Lagos, Oxford University, United Kingdom, and entered the civil service after graduation. He served in several positions in the civil service and reached the peak of his career as permanent secretary in the Federal Ministry of Economic Development where he helped to reshape Nigeria’s post-civil war economy before and after the civil war.
Maje Ayida and Toke Makinwa got married back on January 15, 2014, in a very private ceremony which was attended by close friends and family. It was so private that Toke was the one who announced the marriage to the public on her Instagram page with pictures from the private ceremony. However, the marriage crashed about a year after following cheating allegations.
