The Honourable Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has described the late Dr. Amuda Aluko as a respected elder statesman and opinion moulder, who contributed greatly to the development of Kwara State in particular and that of the nation in general.
In a statement issued by the Special Adviser to the President (Media), Office of the Minister of Information and Culture, Segun Adeyemi in Abuja on Friday, the Minister condoled with the family on the demise of the late foremost medical practitioner.
He said in his lifetime, Dr. Aluko, who was a member of the National Reconciliation Committee, always put the interest of the people of the state at the centre of his actions, whether as a community leader or as a medical practitioner. ”It was therefore not a surprise that he bagged the title of the Tafida of Ilorin, one of the highest and most respected titles in the Ilorin Emirate, in addition to being bestowed with a national honour,” he said.
The Minister prayed that Allah will grant the deceased Al Janna Firdaus and grant his family the strength to bear their irreparable while consoled Emir of Ilorin, the government and people of Kwara State.
