The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, has expressed sadness over the passing of a foremost businessman and industrialist, Alhaji Umar Saro.
The Speaker said Alhaji Umar Saro was one Nigerian that did not only employ thousands of Nigerians through his chains of businesses but also engaged in philanthropic activities to help the lives of the people.
He said Kwara State and indeed Nigeria have lost a patriotic citizen whose major preoccupation was to put smiles on the faces of the people.
Gbajabiamila commiserated with the Umar Saro family, the Ilorin Emirate, the governor, the people and Government of Kwara State over the loss.
He prayed Almighty Allah to grant the soul of the late industrialist eternal rest and reward him with Jannatul Firdaus.
