ormer Vice President and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Atiku Abubakar, has described the late Senator representing Abia North, Senator Uche Chukwumerije, as a fine gentleman.
Atiku Abubakar said in a press statement signed by his media office in Abuja on Monday.
He said the news of the one-time Minister of Information’s death came to him as a rude shock.
“Senator Chukwumerije was in the class of those gentlemen you cannot but notice his outstanding qualities even when he stood in the midst of other men.
“His mannerism came across as someone who was well cultured. He was very sartorial in style and in presentation; and he never confused you about the disciplined background of his origin. He was a very worthy ambassador of his people.
“As a politician, he was very classy and as a statesman he was exceptional. His death came as a rude shock and I do sincerely pray that God grants his family, the people of Abia State, friends and colleagues at the National Assembly the fortitude to bear the loss,” he said.
“IPOB is being sponsored by those I will call the Coalition of the politically disgruntled and the treasury looters. They believe that by sponsoring this group to destabilize the country and trigger chaos, they will realize their ambition of escaping justice and then be free to dip their hands into the nation’s treasury again.”
