Just In! Buhari mourns Akindele

The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has described the death of foremost philanthropist and entrepreneur, Chief Bode Akindele, as an irreparable loss to the country.



“Chief Akindele was a man of many parts. He was a creator of jobs who demonstrated untiring love for the downtrodden.

“His philanthropic gestures knew no bounds, intervening especially in critical sectors of the economy,” Buhari said in a statement made available to journalists on Monday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.


The President recalled that the late industrialist was one of the early groups of private individuals to support government intervention in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, donating handsomely to the fund.

He condoled with the government and people of Oyo State, particularly the Olubadan-in-Council on the loss of the Parakoyi of Ibadanland whose immeasurable contributions to development and progress of his community and country, he said, remained paramount till the very end.

The statement added, “President Buhari also commiserated with Organised Private Sector on the departure of a key member whose imprints in various sectors will remain indelible.
