Joseph Molemodile, former commissioner for finance in Kogi state, is dead.


Molemodile, an indigene of Idofin in Yagba east local government, is the pioneer legal adviser of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.

He was said to have died at his residence in Jos, the Plateau state capital, while resting after his early morning exercise on Thursday.

Two days earlier, Kola Ojo, a vice-chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, had slumped and died while playing lawn tennis in Lagos.


In a statement, Kingsley Fanwo, special adviser to the governor on information and communication strategy, said the deceased introduced innovations to the state finances while he was in service.

“He brought a lot Of innovations and financial engineering to bear on the management of the state’s finances and continued to render selfless services to the State and humanity even long after leaving Office,” Fanwo said.

“Losing such an enigmatic character at a time the State is refocusing her finances to serve the people and creating more opportunities is hard to take and also disheartening.


“We shall ensure his name is immortalised to drive home the sterling rewards of service and patriotism that the late Chief Molemodile stood for.”

The deceased politician was said to be an ally of Abubakar Audu, a former governor of the state, and became a commissioner during his tenure. Molemodile also served as managing director of Kogi Savings and Loans.
