Ambode acknowledges Rasheed Gbadamosi’s role in development of Lagos.


As tributes trail the death of seventy-two year-old renowned industrialist – Rasheed Gbadamosi, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode says the erstwhile Minister of National Planning will be remembered as a Nigerian, who was always willing to serve his fatherland.

In a condolence, the governor notes that, as a foundation member of the State’s first Executive Council after the creation of Lagos in nineteen-sixty-seven, Gbadamosi contributed immensely to laying a very solid foundation for what has unarguably become Centre of Excellence in the country.

Gbadamosi, who died yesterday, is reputed as the youngest commissioner ever in Lagos; having been appointed into the State’s cabinet at age of twenty-six and was, until death, Co-Chairman of Lagos at Fifty Committee, set up by Governor Ambode.

While commiserating with relations and friends of the late economist and art connoisseur, Governor Ambode urged them to take solace in the fact that he lived a fulfilled life and continued to render meritorious service to the State until his demise.
