Family of late Capt. Hosa Wells Okunbo has paid glowing tributes to the departed philanthropist.

His daughter, Mrs Adesuwa Okunbo-Rhodes, described her late father as a lover of people with a listening ear for everybody that came to him with a challenge.

“It is not only about his resources but also his time, which transcended beyond ethnic lines, he was a lover of this Nigeria,” she said.

She spoke shortly after his late father was posthumously awarded the quintessential philanthropist in 2021 by the management of Daily Telegraph Publishing Company.

Describing the award as a huge honour to the family, she said: “My dad was a lover of people and he always had a listening ear for everybody that came to him with a challenge. It is not only about his resources but also his time, which transcended beyond ethnic lines, he was a lover of this Nigeria.

He taught us a lot about sacrifice and being focused. Amid all his successes he understood clearly that everything he had was from God and that he was a vessel of impact in Nigeria. Giving him this posthumous award means a lot, it highlighted who he was.”
