Nigeria’s Political History Would Be Incomplete Without Mentioning Tunji Braithwaite’s Role – Buhari

Tunji Braithwaite
President Muhammadu Buhari has mourned the passing of elder statesman and pro-democracy advocate, Tunji Braithwaite, who died on Monday at the age of 82.
The president also commiserated with the immediate family, friends, professional colleagues and political allies of Mr. Braithwaite.

Mr. Buhari in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, expressed the belief that the death of the lawyer, author and politician came at a time that his wisdom, intellectual depth, vast knowledge and experience were sorely needed by the country.
The statement said President Buhari recalled the immeasurable contributions of the late sage to the development of democracy, rule of law and human rights in Nigeria, assuring his family and friends that the political history of the country would be incomplete without capturing his roles.
Buhari urged political leaders to emulate the virtues of the founder of the Nigerian Advance Party (NAP) during the Second Republic, who perceived politics as a platform for honest service to the nation rather than an opportunity to make money.
President Buhari noted that the elder statesman was quintessentially selflessness, patriotic and committed to national development as his passion to serve the people never waned despite not winning in the presidential elections.
The president prayed that the Almighty God will grant the soul of the deceased eternal rest, and comfort his loved ones.
