The Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), has expressed sadness over the death of its former Director-General, Sir Remi Omotoso, which sad event took place in the early hours of Friday, 5th June, 2020 after a brief illness.
Sir Remi Omotoso, who was the Director – General of LCCI from 2005 to 2008 was a highly respected member who served the Chamber meritoriously.
Until his death, he was a member of the Chamber’s Executive Committee and Council.
Toki Mabogunje, President of the LCCI, said: “Sir Remi Omotoso will strongly be missed by all of us at the Lagos Chamber because of his numerous contributions to the Chamber movement and the growth of the Organised Private Sector.
He was a complete gentleman and an astute boardroom guru, who served both God and humanity selflessly throughout his lifetime.”
“For us at the Lagos Chamber, his death is a colossal loss and we shall endlessly miss his forthright disposition, wealth of knowledge, experience and dedication to the organised private sector and the development of our great nation.
“However, we are consoled by the great legacies he has left behind. It is indeed our hope and prayer that God Almighty, whom he served devotedly throughout his lifetime, will comfort his dear family, give them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss and grant him eternal rest,” she said.
