President Muhammadu Buhari has sent a message of condolence to the family of former Minister of Information, Chief Alex Opeyemi Akinyele, who passed away on Thursday night.
The President commiserated with the government and people of Ondo State, friends and professional colleagues of the departed, urging them to take solace in the lasting legacies of the former colourful minister, who also served as Chairman of National Sports Commission and Chairman of National Reconciliation Committee.
President Buhari said Chief Akinyele’s scrupulousness, discipline and diligence were always obvious to those who worked closely with him, as a trained teacher and public relations specialist.
He also praised Akinyele’s love for the nation, which was zealously demonstrated through providing exemplary leadership.
The President prayed that the Almighty God will grant the soul of the former minister eternal rest, and comfort all members of his family.
