President Bola Tinubu has conveyed his deepest sympathy to the family of Pa Taiwo Akinkunmi, who designed the national flag in 1958 and “left a generational legacy,” following his passing into glory at the age of 87.

A statement issued on Wednesday by Chief Ajuri Ngelale, Special Adviser to the President (Media & Publicity), said the president condoled with friends and associates of the retired civil servant, who dedicated his life to the service of the nation, sharing knowledge and experience with old and young, and inspiring many to think and act patriotically.

President Tinubu affirmed that the Green and White Flag is a legacy that has consistently reflected the fruitfulness, resilience, and harmony enjoyed by the nation and the boldness and uniqueness with which Nigerians characteristically reach for and achieve success around the world.

He expressed the belief that Pa Akinkunmi lived and worked for the greatness of the country and rests eternally in a place of honour in Nigeria’s history.
