Nigerians from all works of life mourn the passing away of the television playwright, seasoned broadcaster, diplomat and defender of African refugees Amb. Olushola.
He died last week after years of meritorious service to home and country.
He served his country as the former ambassador to Ethiopia.
He was popularly known during his epic programme Village Headmaster, which he created and directed on television. His programme was one of most popular television sitcoms in the 70s and early 80s that ran for over a decade before it was taken off the air.
According to Lagos State Governor, Mr. Raji Fahola: the passage of the icon would create a big vacuum in the broadcast and cultural space of the country and challenges the youths of the country to be inspired by his life to always “aspire to be the very best in their chosen callings” the same way Ambassador Olusola and his generation excelled in their chosen professions.
In his word former governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel: “ Nigeria has lost a diplomat, peace builder, foremost promoter of culture, humanist, patriot, a consummate writer and dramatist.
Ogun State governor Senator Ibikunle Amosun described Olusola as “a thoroughbred professional, consummate administrator and humanist extraordinaire, who distinguished himself in public life.”
May his soul rest in perfect peace.
