Obaseki Mourns As Former President Shagari Passes At 93
The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki has mourned the passing of former Nigerian President, Alhaji Shehu Shagari, whose death at the National Hospital, Abuja, was announced on December 28.

Alhaji Shagari, aged 93 years, served as Nigeria's President from 1979 to 1983.

The governor said that Shagari played an active role in the growth and development of Nigeria, and until his death, rendered invaluable support to successive administrations for the uplift of the country.

He said, "It is with great sadness that I received the news of the passing of former President, Alhaji Shehu Shagari. As an elder statesman, Shagari maintained a rather quite and simple lifestyle and was always available to advise the nation's leaders. I commiserate with his family, the government and people of Sokoto State on his passing and pray that God grants them the fortitude to bear the loss."
