Governor Akinwunmi Ambode yesterday expressed sadness over the death of foremost technocrat and industrialist, Gamaliel Onosode. Onosode, a former Presidential Adviser to President Shehu Shagari died on Tuesday at the age of 82.
“Mr. Onosode was one of the few Nigerians who ruled the boardroom. A quintessential businessman, he was also a master in his field and deeply religious. It was not therefore surprising that he rose to become a leading boardroom player in Nigeria’s corporate environment”.
“He will be remembered for the dexterity he brought to bear when he served as chairman and board member of several multinational companies”.
“I wish to convey my deepest condolences to the Onosode family on behalf of the good people of Lagos state. This is indeed a sad loss”, Governor Ambode said.
He also prayed that Almighty God grant the soul of the departed peaceful repose and for the family, the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
