Onosode Was An Icon of Best of Nigeria’s National Values – Anyaoku

imageFormer Commonwealth Secretary-General Emeka Anyaoku has described the late Gamaliel Onosode as a true symbol of integrity, an outstanding patriot and an icon of the best of Nigeria’s national values.

“An iroko in the corporate world has fallen,” he said in an interview with NAN, while reacting to Tuesday’s passing away of the late former presidential adviser.

NAN reports that Onosode, a chartered stockbroker, administrator and financial consultant, had passed on early Tuesday.

“Gam, as he was called by his contemporaries, was a true symbol of integrity in the boardroom. He was an outstanding patriot and an icon of the best on Nigeria’s national values,” Anyaoku said.

He also said Onosode was outstanding in his support for religious activities.

“He was a man of God who deployed a significant part of his righteously acquired resources to supporting the church in his hometown of Ughelli and in Lagos where he lived an exemplary modest life,” Anyaoku said.
The former Commonwealth Secretary-General further said Onosode would be missed by the very many people whose lives he touched in many beneficial ways.

“Gamaliel was my best man at our wedding almost 53 years ago. My entire family, which enjoys close relationship with his family, joins his wife Susan and their children in mourning this virtuous man.

“We thank God for his remarkable and fulfilled life, and pray that his soul will ret in perfect peace,” Anyaoku said.
