President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the government and people of Kwara state over the loss of renowned industrialist, quantity surveyor and philanthropist, Chief Emmanuel Olatunji Adesoye.
According to a statement by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, President Buhari sends condolences to all the professional colleagues, business associates and family members of the educationist, who spent his entire life in service of humanity, especially in helping the under privileged acquire quality education.
Adesina said that the President believes that the life and times of the industrialist and educationist deserve documentation for posterity, as he defied many odds to courageously set up many companies and an educational institution that had since turned into one of the best in the country.
President Buhari also commended the late Asiwaju of Offa for his patriotism, wisdom and discipline, which he said “also clearly translated into his many awards as a foremost quantity surveyor.”
The President prayed that the almighty God will receive the soul of the departed, and comfort his family.
