Prominent South-South leaders on Friday eulogized the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun for his total dedication to the service of the nation.

“Nigerians have reasons to be grateful to Oyegun for his contribution to the development of democracy.” the leaders, under the aegis of the South-South Front (SSF), said.

In a statement signed by SSF Chairman, Chief John Harry, the leaders commended Oyegun for devoting almost his entire adult life to the service of the Nigerian State, engaging party faithful in exciting ways and thinking outside the box.

They described the APC national chairman as a selfless leader, ardent nationalist, a profound humanist, an astute politician and a paragon of virtues.

“Chief Odigie-Oyegun, a clean and competent administrator, erudite politician and a true democrat, is dedicated and fearless. He is also a fighter for good governance and transparency” the leaders said.

Recalling his days as executive governor of Edo State on the platform of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), the leaders noted the improvement in the various sectors, provision of potable water, potent health care delivery and good roads as well as secured living in the state.

They praised Oyegun for his free education at all levels and health services for children and maternal cases, the completion of Oba Market, the Cultural Centre and State Water Board Headquarters.

They also commended him for the huge employment, provision of a modern and subsidized urban mass transit system, relocation of NABTEB to Edo State and successful lobbying of the Federal Government to take over the polytechnic in Auchi.

“Oyegun’s politics hinges on the pillar of development, concern for the nation and its people. The former governor of Edo State met the yearnings and aspirations of the people during his short stint in power”

The leaders described as irresponsible the campaign of calumny by Anambra State governor, Dr. Willie Obiano.

They condemned him for throwing the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) into confusion.

“Dr. Willie Obiano is arrogant, reckless, evil and intoxicated with destruction. He is not on the best of terms with Peter Obi and others who took him from his banking job to Government House”.

The leaders also rebuffed the arrogance and disrespect of Timi Frank, saying but for Oyegun’s extraordinary commitment to reconciliation and tolerance, crises would have taken over the ruling party.

They advised the national chairman to disregard the governor’s antics and concentrate on the job of delivering Anambra State to APC.

The leaders while wishing Oyegun good health and happiness thanked him for providing purposeful leadership in Nigeria, particularly Edo State.

“It is a great honour for us to offer our sincere greetings and best wishes on the occasion of your 78th birthday” the leaders added.
