“I thank God for the life of our father and grandfather, and we have heard so much about him already today.
“I think that one of the most important things we have heard and we know about him was how he gave so much for the poor and those who needed help, for church, civil society in Ibefun as well as in Lagos here, and all over Nigeria.”
Referring to his career in the Public Service, Prof. Osinbajo noted that:
“We can only say that he marks the passing of an era. A certain type of public servant who after so many years at the Nigeria Ports Authority, no one could find anything wrong against him. He had an unblemished career and then went to the private sector and did so well.”
He then prayed for the rest of the family noting that the Almighty God will bless the memory of their patriarch.
Earlier on arrival at the deceased Ikoyi residence, the vice president signed the condolence which reads thus:
“We thank the Lord for the life and greatness of his son, Pa Prince Michael Taiwo. We are extremely proud of his excellent legacy and pray that the Lord will bless his memory always.”
