The Chairman, Ladi Adebutu Development Organisation, Hon (Dr) Oladipupo Adebutu, has joined other eminent Nigerians to mourn the transition of a notable personality in Ogun State, national political leader and two-time Minister, Alhaji Jubril Martins-Kuye, OFR , which occurred on Sunday, 17th January, 2021, at the age of 80.
In a condolence message signed by the Media Consultant, Afolabi Orekoya, Adebutu described the death of the foremost political leader, mentor and administrator par excellence as an irreparable loss to the people of Ogun State and the entire nation.
He said further that the former Minister of State for Finance was a great and peace loving man whose devotion to the progress of humanity was not only unquantifiable but legendary.
“Baba was a man of integrity who made highly indelible marks in his sojourn while on earth. He was steadfast in the economic betterment of humanity which endeared him to the downtrodden; a man of exemplary honour and leadership consistency.”
“We are certain that Baba Kuye will forever remain a pride to all and his contributions to the development of democracy in Nigeria will be fondly remembered”, the message reads.
Adebutu, also, stated that the untiring contribution of baba Kuye to the growth, development and unification of the Peoples Democratic Party,PDP, in Ogun State are worthy of note and duly acknowledged.
The departure of the former Minister of the Federation would be felt most in the political parlance across the length and breadth of the country.
He will also be remembered for his wonderful achievements at different times as Nigeria’s Minister of State for Finance, Minister of Finance and Minister of Commerce & Industry which were impactful as Nigeria witnessed tremendous growth economically.
While urging the Kuye’s family, friends, associates and the PDP family to accept the will of Allah, Adebutu prayed Allah to forgive baba his sins and grant him eternal rest.
