Tinubu mourns Fernandez
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.
