…says he served Nigeria and humanity to the best of his ability
Vice Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during the 2019 elections, Mr. Peter Obi, has joined in mourning former Minister of Petroleum resources, Prof. Tam David-West, describing his passage as “painful”.
A famous virologist, Prof. David-West died on Monday at UCH Ibadan, aged 83.
Obi in a statement late Monday by his Media Office described the late David-West as being “among the tribe of Nigerians that evidently wanted the good of the country, but were caught in the midst of contradiction they themselves could not even unravel.”
He extended his condolences to the family and friends of the outspoken scholar and administrator, describing him as a patriot who served both Nigeria and humanity to the best of his ability.
