Billionaire Femi Otedola Plans Spectacular Burial For Dad On May 30

 ….President Jonathan Will Attend
Billionaire businessman and man at the helms of Forte Oil, Femi Otedola is surely not taking the burial of his late father Sir Michael Agbolade Otedola flippantly with the plans he has in place
to celebrate the life and times of the former governor of Lagos State.
The funeral ceremony, which is being planned to be very stately and classy, will take place on May 28th, 29th and 30th.

Already, the billionaire has ordered the casket that will be the final resting place of his father. The casket, we were told cost a fortune and when it is eventually displayed, many would attest to the fact that huge money was buried to get the casket.
Definitely, the party is going to be a carnival of some sort and it is planned for three venues with the grand final taking place at the family’s country home in Epe.
Most people who are familiar with Femi would tell that he commands a lot of respect because of his style which is evident in everything he does; and the burial will not be different from his way. Though, it will involve many people, the crowd will definitely be the high and mighty of the society.
We even gathered that immediately the father died, the president contacted the oil player and made it known to him that he will be there in person when the burial is taking place. Both Femi and the president have not hidden the fact that they are very close, a reason they’ve been attending events together both in the country and around the world. 
King of Juju Music, KSA and Evangelist Ebenezer Obey have been penciled down to entertain guests on the D-day. Pa. Otedola died on Tuesday, May 6, at the age of 87. We gathered that the former governor died of a stroke related ailment that has kept him from public glare for the past five years.
Pa. Otedola was born on July 16, 1926 at Odoragunsin in the Epe Local Government Area of Lagos State. He won a scholarship to study Journalism at the Regent Street Polytechnic, London and graduated in 1958.
When he returned to Nigeria in 1959, he became an information officer in the Western Nigeria Government and was later appointed the Editor of the Western Nigeria Illustrated. In 1961, he moved to the Western Nigeria Television/Western Broadcasting Service and in 1964, he
joined Mobil Oil Group of Companies.
Pa. Otedola continued as a consultant to Mobil after leaving the company in 1977 before joining politics. He was elected governor of Lagos State from 1992 to 1993 on the platform of the National Republican Convention.
