NewsReel-2 6/5/2014 - Obi Mourns Otedola

Masterweb Reports ] – Mr.  Peter Obi has described the death of the former Governor of Lagos State, Sir Michael Otedola as yet another glorious transition, because, according to him, Otedola gave his best in the service of the country through his selfless services to Lagos State and thus died a happy and fulfilled man.

Recalling his exploits as the former Governor of Lagos State, Obi said he approached governance with sober mind always realizing that governance was an opportunity to serve God by faithfully serving humanity. “He was another proof that governance was nothing if not a dedication to humanity and the urge to be just in the exercise of power and perquisites of office.”


Obi, who said the best gift to Otedola at death, was for Nigerians to re-dedicate themselves to the task of making the country great in whatever capacity one finds oneself, said that legacies of men like him were worth institutionalizing.


He prayed to God to grant repose to his soul, and to his immediate family, Lagos State and all those affected by his death, the courage to accept the will of God.
