It was a celebration of life at the burial of Bashorun Bandele Alfred Latunji when Ms. Bukky Latunji, a former General Manager of Zenith Bank and her siblings gave a befitting farewell to their late dad in Lagos last week Friday.
Pa Latunji, an old boy of CMS Grammar School was a politician and active Anglican Church member who worked as a private secretary to the former Minister of Health, Dr Majekodunmi and also as an undersecretary to Minister of Education, Prof. Jubril Aminu during his heyday in the federal civil service.
The Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Ikate Surulere where Bashorun Latunji worshipped eulogised his selfless efforts in the church projects and activities as second to none.
Bukky Latunji who is presently focussing on personal development, wellness, lifestyle and fashion on her YouTube channel wrote in her tribute,
“My father, you taught me many things in life. You taught me to be self confident,resourceful and self reliant. Growing up you gave me perhaps the best thing a parent could give a child, Proper Education’. You ensured I went to some of the best private schools and you supported as much as you could. Thank you because I turned out very successful”.
Bukky Latunji, fifth of the nine children no doubt stole the show at the church service as well as the reception held at Eko Club with her unique and elegant designs put together by @sys_empire.
The entertainment was unalloyed with lots of camaraderie.
The top management and staff of Zenith Bank were conspicuously available to support one of their own. Noteworthy to mention are the Executive Directors of bank, Dr Tope Fasoranti, Mrs Adaobi Nwapa and Mr Akin Ogunranti.
Also present was Omooba Adefolahan Ibiyemi, the Sooko Abon of Ile-Ife and other numerous personalities.
