Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan has condoled with the Aikhomu family and the government and people of Edo state over the death of former military vice president, Admiral Augustus Aikhomu (rtd).

In his condolence, Dr. Uduaghan expressed shock at the sudden death of the naval chief at a time when the country needs wise and elderly counsels to forge ahead in unity and love.

According to him, late Aikhomu was not only dedicated, diligent and faithful to his professional calling (the Armed forces) but to the country which he served at the topmost level.

Besides, the Governor eulogized Aikhomu for his loyalty and commitment to a united Nigeria as exhibited in his firm believe in one indivisible Nigeria.

“As a politician, Admiral Aikhomu was a moderator whose mein distanced him from the extremists fold.  He was a peace maker that would be missed by all”, he stated.

He prayed God Almighty to grant the family, the government and people of Edo state, the fortitude to bear the loss.
