President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the family and friends of former presidential aspirant of the then All People’s Party, Harry Akande, praying that God will comfort them at such a difficult time.
The president, in a statement by his spokesman, Mr Femi Adesina, joined international and local business partners of the deceased, management and staff of his companies, and all beneficiaries of his foundation in mourning the public spirited investor.
He noted that the late renowned business mogul had over the years registered his kindness in helping the deprived and underprivileged.
According to him, Akande’s role in the nation’s development remains remarkable and commendable.
He particularly commended Akande’s contributions to infrastructural development by ensuring extension of basic services to communities wherever he invested, and continually expanding his interests in construction, electricity and healthcare.
The president prayed for the repose of his soul.
