President Muhammadu Buhari has extended his condolences to the government and people of Lagos State on the death Wednesday of former Minister of National Planning, Chief Rasheed Gbadamosi.
The President also commiserated with family members, friends and professional colleagues of the late economist, eminent industrialist, playwright and promoter of arts and culture. He urged them to be consoled by the fact that Chief Gbadamosi’s contributions in these diverse fields of life would be appreciated for a long time.
In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, President Buhari expressed belief that the nation would remain ever grateful for the meritorious and exemplary roles Chief Gbadamosi played not only as a minister, but also as a former chairman of the Bank of Industry (BoI) and the Petroleum Products Pricing and Regulatory Agency (PPPRA).
“There is no doubting the fact that the economic development of Nigeria was always uppermost in his mind,” the President reminisced about the ex-development expert.
He prayed that the almighty God would grant the soul of the deceased eternal rest and comfort his family.
