An Ibadan-born billionaire and former Presidential aspirant, Harry Ayodele Akande, is dead.

One of his sons, Olumide Akande, who confirmed this in a statement in Ibadan Saturday, said he passed on in the early hours of Saturday following a brief illness.

“Chief Harry Akande was an astute businessman of international repute whose legacy and influence cut across continents.

“But by far, his greatest passion was for a better Nigeria that guaranteed equity and justice for all. It is our fervent hope that this will be a reality in the not too distant future.

“His passing is a huge shock to his immediate and extended family, friends and associates. We are all grappling to make some sense of it”, the statement said.
