Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan has commiserated with the family of the West Africa country’s first President, Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe, over the death of his first son, Chief Chukwuma Bamidele Azikiwe.

Speaking via a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday by the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dr Reuben Abati, the President extended his condolences to the Government and people of Anambra State, and the immediate family of the deceased.

“President Jonathan believes that the late Azikiwe, who was also the Owelle of Onitsha, lived a fulfilled life by sustaining the humanitarian and leadership legacies of his father as a mobiliser, leader, philanthropist and a highly respected voice in his community’’, the statement said.

The President prayed the Almighty God to grant the soul of the departed peaceful rest, and comfort the family he left behind.
