On a condolence visit by the executive members of UIAA to the family, the chairman of the Lagos branch, Mr. Folaranmi Salau, said: “Sir Remi Omotoso was a great link between the legends and the young alumni members of the University of Ibadan. He worked for the sustainability of the alumni in Lagos and at the National level.
“The UIAA Lagos has lost a rare gem, who gave his total support to the newly elected executive members of the Lagos branch of UIAA during a courtesy visit in March before the COVID-19 lockdown. He told us he was in support of our programme for the next two years and volunteered to lead us to various alumni members that will assist in making our goals achievable. Now he is gone”.
