- Advertisment -

Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has expressed sadness over the death of one of Nigeria’s prominent business moguls and diplomats, Antonio Fernandez.

Ambode described the deceased as a bureaucrat and experienced diplomat who gave his all to the service of the African continent during his life time.

He also said the business tycoon offered himself for service to ensure the unity of the nation, saying he would remain a true hero of the country.

Ambode said the leadership role of the late Fernandez who saw himself foremost as an African should be an inspiration to all.

The Governor said it was remarkable that the late Fernandez had the privilege of being among the few diplomats that played a prominent role in promoting peace in Africa as he had taken ambassadorial positions in many African countries.

The governor prayed that God would grant his soul peaceful repose and his family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
