Former Vice President and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Atiku Abubakar, has expressed shock at the death of Ambassador Chukwuma Bamidele Azikiwe, the eldest son of late Nigeria’s first President, Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe.
Atiku said in a press statement issued by his media office in Abuja on Tuesday, that “Chukwuma Bamidele Azikiwe epitomised the very best of the late Zik’s zeal and passion for a united Nigeria: he gave him a Yoruba name despite being of Igbo background and supported his pursuit of a career in Nigeria’s Foreign Service.”
The Turaki Adamawa noted that Ambassador Azikiwe belonged to the vanishing tribe of Nigeria’s core diplomats who steered the ship of Nigeria’s foreign policy during the difficult times of Nigeria as a frontline state struggling for the decolonisation of the African continent.
The former vice president condoled the Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Nna’meka Achebe and the entire Onitsha people on the sad exit of the Owelle and prayed God to grant his soul eternal rest.
"They called Goodluck Jonathan, who gave you YouWIN and SURE-P, and PRESSID Scholarships clueless. So what do we call APC that gives you wheelbarrow? They said GEJ was tribalistic yet his NSA, CDS, IGP, CNS, CGP and minister of defense were from the North. So what do we say of President Muhammadu Buhari whose DG DSS is from his own hometown and whose Minister of Defense, Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Air Staff, NSA, IGP, CGP, CGI, CGP are all from his Northern Region? You see, no matter how far falsehood has travelled, it must eventually be overtaken by truth!"
