  Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, on Monday described a former Minister of Commerce, late Chief (Mrs.) Bola Kuforiji-Olubi, as a consummate administrator who discharged all her duties with passion during her lifetime.

Saraki in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, said while “it is sad that our dear mother has taken her final journey at age 80, the purpose-driven life she led would continue to inspire present and upcoming generations, particularly women. In her humble way, she proved that women can attain the zenith of their career if only they can dare to dream and set out to realise their dreams.”

According to the Senate President, late Chief (Mrs). Kuforiji-Olubi was a personality of many firsts. She was the first female president of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria, ICAN, first woman in sub-Saharan Africa to serve as chairman of a leading financial institution, UBA; the first chairman of ‎Ogun-Osun River Basin Development Authority and Vice Chairman, National Conference on Nigerian foreign policy, among a host of others.

While praying God to grant the soul of the deceased eternal bliss, he commiserated with her immediate family, the people and government of Ogun State over the incident and urged them to be consoled by the fact that the late Otunba Ayora lived a life of achievements worthy of emulation.
