By  Steve Oko
Former Governor of Abia State and the incumbent senator representing Abia Central district, Senator Theodore Orji,  has expressed shock over the demise of ex-President  Shehu Shagari.
Similarly,  the National President of the Nigeria Union of Journalists,  NUJ,  Comrade Chris Isigugozo,  has described Shagari’s death as a great loss to Nigeria.
Orji in a press release said he “received with utter bewilderment the sudden demise of the First Nigerian democratically elected President”.
His words : “It  came as a rude shock to me because there was no news of illness.
“He was  a  statesman who elevated Nigeria  above self and worked to keep the nation one.
” The democracy we enjoy today is directly traced to his enigmatic and indefatigable desire to put the country on the same footing with other nations of the world.
“It is sad that having followed and contributed towards the success of the 2019 elections, he will not be present to see it come to pass.”
Orji,  therefore,  urged the organisers of the 2019 poll to ensure a credible elections as a memorial to the departed ex- President.
“I  want to say that by way of celebrating this icon of democracy and transparent leadership, those saddled with organising must do all within their powers to ensure that his desire for transparency and fairness is propagated.”
He commiserated with the members of the immediate family, Senator Wammako,   the people of Sokoto State and Nigeria in general for the “great loss “, while praying for the repose of his his soul in heaven.
I’m his own reaction,  the NUJ President,  Isigugozo said Nigeria had lost a man of integrity and peace.
He said Shagari died at a time his services and wealth of experience were needed most in the country.
Isigugozo consoled with members of the family and Nigerians for the demise of the former President.
