In a condolence message issued by his Media Office, the APC presidential candidate said:
“I’m deeply saddened by the passing of the Most Rev. Dr. Humprey Bamisebi Olumakaiye, the Archbishop of Province I and Bishop of Lagos.
“I knew and interacted closely with Most Rev. Olumakaiye. A true man of God who evinced that divine calling each time you encountered him, his death is most unfortunate and a loss not only to the Christendom but to me and many others as well.
“He was truly committed to the service of God and humanity. He was helpful in forging good relationship between Christians, Muslims and adherents of other religions in Lagos through his gospel of tolerance, mutual understanding and peaceful coexistence for which many will remember and extol him.
“I pray that Almighty God grant his soul eternal rest and comfort his family, relations, the Lagos diocese, members of the Archbishop’s Palace Cathedral Church of Christ Marina, Lagos, the entire Christian community and indeed all of us who knew him.”
