Nigeria mourns Shonekan’s death

Obafemi Awolowo, Nigeria’s Vice President, has expressed his sadness at the passing of Chief Ernest Shonekan.

After paying his respects to the Shonekan family in Ikoyi, Lagos, with his wife Dolapo at his side, Osinbajo talked to reporters.

Nigerian politician Shonekan, who served as the Interim National Government’s head from Aug. 26, 1993, to Nov. 17, 1993, died on Jan. 11 at the age of 85 in Lagos.

Margaret, the widow, and Adeboye, the vice president’s son, welcomed him.

“I think that it’s a very major loss for the country, for the private sector, and even internationally.

“Here was a man who made an impact; he was one of the first leaders in the private sector to begin to shape economic policy in Nigeria.

“His role in that aspect was significant; of course, many of us know that at various times his interventions in many ways defined the way our economic policy was framed or our economic policy was thrown up.”

According to Osinbajo, the late Shonekan was a significant figure in the private sector leadership.

“Of course, there is no question at all about the role he played at the very tension-filled and uncertain time in the life of the nation, especially as head of the Interim National Government.

“I think that when you look at his role from the private sector to statesman, there is no question at all that this was a very unique individual and I believe that his contributions will be evergreen.

His achievements will endure because of his many roles in the corporate and public sectors, and because he was a one-of-a-kind character in both realms.

It is with great pride and gratitude that we offer our condolences to his family and ask that their memories of him be blessed forever, Osinbajo stated.

Earlier, the vice president prayed for the deceased’s relatives and signed the register of condolences.

“We hope that the Lord will comfort the family and may his memory be blessed eternally in Jesus’ name,” 

Says the vice president’s sympathy statement on the register.
