Abuja (Sundiata Post) – Former Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Amaechi today paid a condolence visit to the Maiduguri home of distinguished Senator Ali Ndume over the recent passing of his father.
Sundiata Post recalls that Ndume was the Chairman of Amaechi Campaign Team at the just completed APC presidential Primary convention held in Abuja.
Amaechi who was a Presidential aspirant in the last All Progressives Congress (APC) primary election, was accompanied by members of his campaign Organisation.
Amaechi said “we are here to condole our leader and chairman of our campaign organization who lost his father. Though the delegation has come on behalf of the campaign but I felt that as the aspirant that they all supported, there is need for me to also visit him again. So we are here to condole with him”.
The former Minister further said, “though we had a bit of time with his father, who had already grown very old then, but he was quite kind to all of us.
Our chairman inherited this seemingly good virtue of his late father. He is almost a replica of his father.
“In Nigeria today, especially at the political terrain,, we have a lot of people who are lacking this quality- good character but not in our chairman.
In all honesty, i think that was what he inherited from his father. So that’s what prompted our coming to say to him that he’s not just a man but a leader that people must emulate, aside his family he should mentor others and pass on this leadership quality to others especially to those that would miss his father.”
The Senator representing Borno South constituency was the Director General, Amaechi Campaign organisations for APC Presidential primary election. Amaechi trailed behind the winner, Bola Ahmed Tinubu with 316 votes.
The entourage had other members of the Amaechi Campaign organisations which include Former Speaker Abia States House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Stanley Ohajuruka, Senetor Representing Taraba Central senatorial zone, Sen. Tutari Abubaker, former Speakers Borno State house of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Bulama Fuji Ibrahim, Sen. Andrew Uchendu, Sen.
