President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the Government and people of Lagos State on the death on Wednesday of former Minister of National Planning, Chief Rasheed Gbadamosi.
The President also extended condolences to all family members, friends and professional colleagues of the late acclaimed 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 and national development would be appreciated for a long time.
“President Buhari also believes that the nation will 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 in a statement issued by his spokesman, Femi Adesina.
The President prayed for God to grant the soul of the deceased eternal rest, and comfort his family.
