DEATH OF AARE ARISEKOLA ALAO

DEATH OF AARE ARISEKOLA ALAO: END OF AN ERA
Unlike many other wealthy Nigerians, he rose from a very poor background. With little education, he built a great business empire by dint of hardwork and transparency. His business acumen and fame started manifesting from the 50s.
The death of Aare Arisekola Alao has left a mighty lacuna which may be difficult to fill for a very long time.
MURIC commiserates with the Sultan of Sokoto and President General of the NSCIA, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, the Muslim Ummah of Nigeria and the Nigerian people at large. We pray that Almighty Allah will forgive Aare Arisekola, shower His Mercy on him and grant him Al-Jannah al-firdaus. We also pray that Allah will give his family the strength to bear this great loss.
