The Second Republic President, Shehu Shagari, has been described as an embodiment of integrity by the Nigerian Young Professionals Forum.
The statement was made by the leader of the forum, Siloko Siasia, on Sunday, when he led members of the forum on a condolence visit to the family of Shehu Shagari.
Siasia, while speaking on the late former President, described him with his character and good qualities which enhanced his great achievements and legendary contributions.
He took the opportunity to call on all political leaders to learn from his “candour and simplicity”. He said;
“Alhaji Shagari was an epitome of integrity, excellence in public service, a courageous leader and a representation of who and what a public servant should be. He would be remembered for leading Nigeria on the part of progress and stability.
“Alhaji Shagari represents the core ideas that the NYPF are advocating for, he represents the ideals of peace, by governance and democratic freedom built on the cardinal principles of national unity, development, and inclusiveness.
“The man who truly embodies Integrity is the late Shehu Shagari and not the one claiming it now. His legacies will continue to live on as a man who was truly detribalized”.
