President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the family, friends, and associates of Professor Dotun Philips over the passing of the distinguished development economist.

The president also consoled the academia, government, and people of Ogun State.

Buhari in a statement on Sunday by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, noted that “Nigeria has lost a brilliant economist who for decades made his wealth of knowledge and experience available of several students, researchers, and governments at all levels.”

According to President Buhari, “The history of the Nigerian civil service cannot be complete without reference to the contributions of Prof. Philips,” adding that he also played significant roles in the evolution of the country’s tax system, development plans, revenue allocation, and building human resource capacities, among others.

The president prays that God will console all those who mourn the distinguished scholar, renowned author, and former director-general, Nigerian Institute for Social and Economic Research, NISER, and grant the soul of Prof. Philips peaceful rest
