Sir Lucky Omoluwa, a businessman has gone through a lot in his life, and in all these he has never given up. But many were surprised penultimate week when the Edo State-born billionaire wept uncontrollably.
Spyglass gathered that tears flowed freely as the remains ofÂ the late Col. John Yahaya Madaki were laid to restÂ in Gawu-Babangida, Gurara Local Government Area of Niger State.
Virtually everybody spoke glowingly about the deceased but two A-class dignitaries, chairman of Pinnacle Communications Limited,Â Omoluwa and former Federal Capital Territory Minister, Dr. Aliyu Modibbo Umar attracted attention as they broke down in tears while extolling the virtues of the late Madaki.
First to weep was Modibbo. Hardly had he mounted the rostrum to pay tribute to his erstwhile role model than he began to weep.
Others took turns to eulogise the late Colonel until the Pinnacle boss was invited to the rostrum. Omoluwa never showed any sign that he would betray any emotions as he walked majestically towards the podium. But suddenlyÂ his confidence evaporated, he slowed down his pace impulsively; put himself together and showered encomiums on the deceased for a life well-spent but as he went down memory lane, he broke down.
Omoluwa has an inextinguishable love for the Madakis. In spite of his busy schedule, he volunteered as the vice chairman of the burial organising committee to ensure that the late Col Madaki got a befitting burial.
