The Federal Government on Friday commiserated with the family of a former Minister of State for Power and Steel, Chief Oyekunle Oluwasanmi, who died on Thursday, July 14.
Oluwasanmi was appointed Minister of State for Power and Steel in 1997, under the administration of the late Gen. Sani Abacha.
This is contained in a statement issued by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Boss Mustapha.
The Federal Government expressed shock over the death of Oluwasnmi.
The government also commiserated with the people of Osun, friends and associates of the ex-minister.
“The Federal Executive Council prays that God should grant eternal repose to the soul of the deceased,” Mustapha said.
Prior to his appointment as minister, Oluwasanmi was a Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) Area Administrator for Tin Can Island and Calabar Ports, besides serving on several boards and commissions.
