Atiku Abubakar Mourns Adenoyi-Ojo

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has described his former spokesperson, Onukaba Adenoyi-Ojo, as an irreplaceable asset, who was loyal and reliable until the very last day, adding his death was shocking and painful.
In a statement by his media office in Abuja, Abubakar particularly described the death of the veteran journalist, playwright, writer and academic as “shocking and painful beyond words”.
Abubakar, who has known Adenoyi-Ojo for nearly three decades, said the deceased was at his house last Friday.
“He visited me just before travelling out of Abuja. I had no idea that it was the last time I would ever set eyes on him,” he mourned.
According to Abubakar:“Adenoyi-Ojo had little concern for material things.
“He was a pure intellectual, motivated only by a desire to give the best that his brains had to offer.”
The former Vice President added that an entire book of thousands of pages would be needed if he were to say everything that he thought and felt about his long-time friend, now gone forever.
“May God grant his family in particular his children the grace they need to go through this toughest of times,” he said.
