Governor Bello in his condolence message, through a press statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Muhammed Onogwu, described the revered administrator as a man who has left his indelible footprint in Nigeria’s political and economic environment.

He noted that Makoju, although fulfilled in age, would be dearly missed as an elder statesman whose role in giving noteworthy counsel to leadership could never be undermined.

He opined that the Okene born astute technocrat, who was also a member of the Kogi State Economic Advisory Council, has a remarkable track record in the private sector which was also worthy of accolades adding that he brought great honour to his homeland.

The governor commiserated with the family, friends, and associates of the elder statesman while he prayed for God to grant those greatly hurt by his demise the fortitude to bear the loss.
