Listen to article

The death of foremost technocrat and boardroom Czar, Deacon Gamaliel

Onosode, has deprived Nigerians, particularly the people of Delta State of

the services of one of the most consistent administrators of this age,

says Delta State House of Assembly Speaker, Rt. Hon Ovwigho Igbuya.

“Onosode was a family man that radiated the best of family values” he said.

Igbuya who also described the death of the former chairman of Dunlop

Nigeria Plc, Cadbury Nigeria Plc and Zain Nigeria as sad and painful,

noted that the boardroom guru proved to Nigerians and the international

community that there was everything to gain from being principled.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Speaker, Mr. Henry Ebireri

urged the younger generation of Nigerians to take a cue from the ideals

that Onosode lived for- building a better Urhobo nation, Delta State and

“In Nigeria, Onosode stood out. He was a rare gem and a visionary leader

with the knack for identifying talents. As the head of then NAL merchant

bank of Nigeria, he brought together bright young men and women, some of

whom are today in top banking position in the country and abroad. As a

presidential adviser to President Shagari and a former president of the

Nigerian Institute of Management, he demonstrated exceptional

administrative prowess.
He urged Onosode's immediate family and the Urhobo people at home and

abroad to take solace in the belief that God's will is unquestionable and

must always prevail,”
“He prays that God Almighty will comfort them all and grant the late

boardroom player in Nigeria's corporate environment's soul peaceful

repose,” Ebireri stated.
“We will certainly miss he former chairman of the Niger Delta

Environmental Survey, Global Missions Board of the Nigerian Baptist

Convention and the Nigerian Baptist Theological Seminary, Ogbomoso. We

will certainly miss this quiet and unassuming man on so many fronts” the

statement added.
