BY SEN. DINO MELAYE
Good people die everyday. Yet not all of them affirm for us the goodness in humanity and leadership the way the late former Assistant Comptroller General (ACG) of Customs, Mr. Jimmy Olumudi did.
He passed away and left a legacy of positive experiences for anyone who took the time to know him, which wasn’t a hard thing to do. Most likely you don’t know Mr Jimmy Olumudi but you can learn from the legacy he left. He was an unsung hero.
His passion and hard work led him to become a great leader especially within the community with the ability to manage people and minds. The fact is, we have too few examples of great leaders like him.
However, we have the privilege of celebrating someone who epitomizes leadership, someone whose life reflects a heart of service and commitment to faith, family, friends, and certainly his community and humanity at large.
Mr Jimmy Olumudi was a man of many facets, Altruist, Leader, Philanthropist, and a fulfilled career officer of the Nigerian Custom Service.
A contemplative man by nature he took family, business, and community to the heart of his existence.
You will be greatly missed but your footprints can not be easily forgotten nor wiped away in the sand of life.
My heartfelt condolences to the Olumudi family, KDU and the entire Kabba community as I pray that God will give you strength in this period and beyond and to rest him in peace.
-Senator Dino Melaye
