Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has come out to say that ex-President of Kenya, Arap Moi, is one of the foremost leaders of African decolonization and a founding father of the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA).

Yemi’s spokesman, Laolu Akande, in a recent statement, revealed that Osinbajo represented Nigeria at the state funeral for the late Moi in Nairobi, Kenya.

According to Osinbajo, Moi will be remembered for the pioneering work he did especially with respect to regional cooperation.

He added that his work on earth will define the future of trade and relations in Africa

His words, “Many of us in Africa will remember him in particular for the pioneering work that he did especially with respect to regional cooperation.

“He was, as we have heard, very instrumental in the resuscitation of the East African Community along with President Museveni and others.

“He was also very instrumental in COMESA and even the Intergovernmental Authority on Development, IGAD.

“These are the precursors of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement arrangements we are making today and to which almost every African country has subscribed.

“And it will define the future of trade and relations in Africa.”

He died on Feb. 4 at the age of 95.
