Nigeria President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday said he was in shock and grief over the demise of a foremost Igbo leader and philanthropist, Alhaji Abdulazeez Chibuzor Ude of Anambra State.
Reacting to the death of the media investor, President Buhari described Abdulazeez Ude as “one of the most unostentatious philanthropists in the country.
According to the President, Late Ide worked for humanity without making any noise about it.”
“Doing goodness without bragging about it is one of the greatest virtues and the late Abdulazeez Ude had passed such a test of humility with distinction,” the President noted.
“We also have to give credit to the deceased because of his significant contributions to the creation of Anambra, Ebonyi and Delta States by being one of the signatories or advocates for that effort.”
“Apart from his philanthropic activities, the late Alhaji Ude was also an advocate of religious tolerance who didn’t discriminate against anyone because of religious differences” he added.
Thereafter, Buhari prayed to Allah to forgive his shortcomings and reward his good deeds with paradise.
