THE former governor of Lagos State and Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has described the late Ambassador Chief Antonio Oladeinde Fernandez as a man whose life and times bear testimony to the noble and enviable heights to which men of all creed and colour may aspire.

In his condolence letter, a copy of which was made available to The Guardian, he portrayed him as a Nigerian, an African and a member of the community of peace-loving, industrious and humane citizens of the world.

“I recall, with pride, the gargantuan and extensive contributions of Ambassador Chief Antonio Oladeinde Fernandez, who recently transited from this earth-to humanity, Africa and Nigeria. I pay homage to the memory of a worthy son of Nigeria.
