President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has extolled the virtues of late Ambassador Olusegun Olusola, saying his commitment to the promotion of excellence in the arts and culture sector, broadcasting and public service, are worthy of emulation.
The President who remembered how Ambassador Olusola’s popular television drama series, The Village Headmaster, thrilled television viewers for decades, commended the selflessness and professionalism he demonstrated in broadcasting and all his other ventures, including his frontline role as a member of the Iperu Remo Community in Ogun state.
President Jonathan also acknowledged Chief Olusola’s distinguished role as Nigeria’s Ambassador to Ethiopia, as well as his promotion of peace in Africa under the auspices of the African Refugees Foundation (AREF), which he founded.
The President noted that Ambassador Olusola’s dedication to selfless service and peace-loving nature, even at an advanced age, will surely be missed.
President Jonathan while commiserating with members of the Olusola family, enjoined them to take solace in the fact that the eminent Ambassador lived a fulfilled, memorable and exemplary life.
He also prayed that God Almighty will grant the soul of Chief Olusola peaceful rest.
