A statement issued by the President’s Special Adviser on Media & Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, said that the President believed that the legendary artist and founding President of the Society of Nigeria Artists (SNA) was “a master in promoting creativity and raising awareness on the beauty in indigenous traditions.”

According to Adesina, the President affirmed that one of the greatest legacies of Grillo was “his devotion to educating and mentoring a younger generation, who, expectedly, through the power of the visual arts will continue to promote dialogue, understanding and appreciation of the uniqueness of the Nigerian society.”

The President then prayed for the repose of the soul of the departed and comfort for his many well-wishers who will sorely miss him.
