Abuja - President Muhammadu Buhari has extended his heartfelt condolences to the family of the foremost administrator and technocrat, Gamaliel Onosode, who passed away at the age of 82.

This is contained in a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday by the president’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.

The president also commiserated with the government and people of Delta State and the Nigerian Baptist Convention on the passing away of their illustrious son and evangelist.

President Buhari said, apart from being a colossus in Nigeria’s private sector, the deceased also excelled in public service on various occasions.

According to him, Onosode will be long remembered as an exemplary citizen and leader, who made very significant contributions to national development.

The President urged his family, friends, associates and other Nigerians to honour Onosode's memory by upholding the virtues of integrity, honesty and dedication to service, which he passionately promoted in his highly successful career in the private and public sectors.

He, therefore, prayed that God would comfort all who mourned the late Onosode and grant his soul eternal rest.
