My thoughts & prayers are with his family & loved ones. My late father used to pray that I grow up to be like Chief Akindele. I was privileged to meet him recently, and we discussed using his medical facility, ARAMED, as an isolation centre for Oyo State. He was also the single largest donor to our state’s COVID-19 Endowment Fund. He will be sorely missed for his kind-heartedness and good deeds. May his soul rest in peace and may God grant his family the fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss“, he tweeted.Buhari, Seyi Makinde Mourn Late Chief Bode Akindele
