Buhari also stated that the nation would remain ever grateful for the meritorious and exemplary roles Gbadamosi played not only as a minister, but also as a former chairman of the Bank of Industry (BoI) and the Petroleum Products Pricing and Regulatory Agency (PPPRA).

“There is no doubting the fact that the economic development of Nigeria was always uppermost in his mind,’’ the President reminisced about the ex-development expert.

The President prayed that the almighty God would grant the soul of the deceased eternal rest, and comfort his family.
