Chairman of the Southwest Governors’ Forum and Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, had the death of the former Head of the Interim National Government, Chief Ernest Shonekan as a huge loss to the country.
According to Akeredolu who said he received the death of the elder statesman with a heavy heart, his belief in a united and peaceful Nigeria was unparalleled
While noting that the vast experience of Shonekan was an asset to the country, particularly with the array of challenges confronting the nation, Akeredolu in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Richard Olatunde, said his commitment to one Nigeria endeared him to many.
He maintained that as a patriot, the late Shonekan who was committed to the peace and unity of the country pursued it with vigor and dedication.
Akeredolu added that the service of the former Head of Interim National Government will never be forgotten in the annals of history of the country.
“Chief Ernest Shonekan was a Nationalist per excellence. His belief in a united and peaceful Nigeria was unparalleled. He was dedicated to the progress and development of the county. He will be sorely missed.
“His historic and patriotic role in maintaining the unity of the country was one of the many things that endeared him to many. He was indeed an asset, his counsels were useful for national cohesion and progress.”
In the statement, Akeredolu prayed God to grant the deceased eternal rest, while commiserating with his wife, the government and people of Ogun State.
