Professor Tam David-West, a diehard supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari has died aged 83-years-old.
David West served as the minister of Petroleum and Energy under the Muhammadu Buhari military regime, and Minister of Mines, Power and Steel under Gen. Ibrahim Babangida regime.
President Buhari through his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina describe the late west an indomitable spirit, who stood resolutely by whatever he believed in, and was in a class of his own.
He commiserates with the David-West family, the people of Buguma, Kalabari Kingdom of Rivers State, the academia, and all those who loved “the forthright Tam David-West.”
President Buhari prays that God will rest the soul of the committed nationalist, urging all those who believe in the ideals he espoused to approximate same, for the betterment of Nigeria, and humanity in general.
