President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with family and friends of renowned business mogul and presidential aspirant of the then All People’s Party (APP), Chief Harry Akande.
He prayed that God will comfort and strength them at such a difficult time.
The Special Adviser to the President, (Media & Publicity), Femi Adesina in a statement on Monday said Buhari 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, who over the years registered his kindness in helping the deprived and underprivileged.
He believed Chief Akande’s role in the nation’s development remains remarkable and commendable, particularly contributing 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 prays for the repose of his soul,” the statement added.
