Buhari sympathises with Anambra govt over death of ex-governor Mbadinuju
President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with the government and people of Anambra State over the death of the former governor of the state, Dr Chinwoke Mbadinuju.
Buhari extended his heartfelt condolences to the government and people of Anambra State, as well as the Mbadinuju family of Uli, Ihiala LGA.
The President believed that the late Mbadinuju’s legacy of peace and development in the state, including ending the long years of violent conflict in Umuleri and Aguleri during his administration as governor, will forever remain an important part of the history of Anambra.
This was disclosed on Tuesday in a statement by Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity.
Buhari said Mbadinuju will also be remembered for his vision for the people of the state and beyond on quality education and entrepreneurship, which led to the establishment of the Anambra State University, now Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University.
Buhari paid tribute to the dogged determination of Mbadinuju, a seasoned academic, journalist and lawyer who inspired and empowered many young people to believe in the power of their dreams and achieve their potential.
The President urged family, friends, colleagues and well-wishers to reflect on the contributions of the former governor in building lives and communities.
Buhari prayed that the memory of the departed would be a blessing and inspiration to all that mourn.
