Bukola Saraki mourns Alex Ekwueme

Senate President, Bukola Saraki has mourned the death of former Vice President, Alex Ekwueme, who died after protracted illness.

"Today, I join Ndigbo and the entire nation to mourn the passing of one of Nigeria’s most illustrious sons, H.E. Dr. Alex Ekwueme, our first elected Vice-President.

As we mourn his death, we celebrate his dedication and service to the development of our country.

I will always remember Dr. Alex Ekwueme for his exemplary courage in the face of overwhelming odds — when he stood up to past military regimes, and his dexterity in his personal pursuits as a successful architect, lawyer, businessman and philanthropist.

I pray for God’s strength for Dr. Alex Ekwueme’s family at this difficult time. May the Almighty in His infinite wisdom and grace continue to guide the family and the nation that he has left behind. He was a rare man and a great leader, as such, he will be missed." He wrote on Twitter.
