Salisu further said: “As a leader, Chief Shonekan was well respected because of the enormous goodwill he brought into the Nation. He was a compassionate and determined administrator, a peacemaker and bridge-builder who stepped in to lead the nation at a very difficult time in the history of its political evolution.

“He was a man, a leader and an uncommon patriot who had a presence of mind and whose understanding of Nigeria was profound and remarkable. It is indeed a loss to the Nation.

“He was an engaging personality whose sense of patriotism was total. He was friendly and sociable. 

"He will be remembered for his great wisdom, peaceful disposition, the goodwill he extended to all as well as his significant contributions to the growth of the economy of the nation.”
