Olufemi M. Awoyemi, who is the current CEO, Founder and Chairman of Proshare Nigeria, confirmed the death of Agusto on Thursday via his X (formerly Twitter) handle.

“@bodeagusto, the founder of @agustoandco, was the pioneer who taught us all how to respect facts and data in our engagements,” Awoyemi posted.

“A great human being and a fabulous teacher you were. Your teachings, delivered with conviction, will always be with all of us; our career paths were impacted by you.

“I pray to Almighty God to give enough strength to his family members to overcome this loss, and may his soul rest in peace.”

Agusto & Co., established in 1992, played a crucial role in introducing credit rating services to Nigeria.

The company was officially licensed by the Securities and Exchange Commission, making it the nation’s very first credit rating agency. Agusto led the company as Managing Director for 11 years.
