Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has described the late Governor of Ondo State, Olusegun Agagu, as a consummate politician who would be missed for his sagacity and skillfulness both in politics and public administration.
Atiku, in a condolence message on the demise of the immediate governor of the Sunshine state, noted that Agagu’s death came with a personal pain to him, “because he was a friend, and a brilliant strategist.”
Atiku noted that “late Governor Olusegun Agagu not only sat eminently among politicians of note in the country, his contribution to Geology, his area of specialization is also very impressive.
“Be it in politics, scholarly undertakings or public administration, the late Governor Agagu was a first class material. I will miss him as a friend, but the country will miss him as a worthy citizen and leader,” Atiku said.
The former Vice President extended his sympathies to the late governor’s family, the people and government of Ondo State and Nigerians as whole over the loss of a worthy scholar, thinker and leader.
