Bode Agusto MFR. My senior friend and mentor. You always answered questions I threw at you concerning the Nigerian state. You taught me how to read a cash flow and balance sheet. You explained to me the challenges of the Nigerian economy each year a budget is read! You talked fondly about Umuahia, especially during your service years.
You were genuine and had no pretentiousness. Bold , brilliant, and highly analytical. A great teacher.
May God comfort Edna and the children. Amen
May your soul rest in peace.
