Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has reacted to the death of former Information and Culture Minister, Prince Tony Momoh, describing his death as a colossal loss.
The Governor in a condolence message on Monday evening by his Chief Press Secretary, Gboyega Akosile said Momoh’s passing away is a colossal loss to Nigeria and the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He said the late elder statesman, politician, and journalist should be immortalized for his huge contributions to national growth and development.
He added that the country as a whole will surely miss his wealth of experience.
He said: “The death of Prince Tony Momoh is a great loss to Nigeria. The late Momoh made lots of positive impact in Nigeria during his life time as a journalist, media manager, lawyer, politician and elder statesman.
“As Minister of Information and Culture between 1986 and 1990 during the military regime of General Ibrahim Babangida, Prince Momoh served his nation meritoriously.
“As a democrat, he played active roles in the formation of various political platforms at the transition stage of Nigeria from military dictatorship to civilian rule. He led his former party, the Congress for Political Change (CPC) to form the APC with other political Parties and contributed positively to the party’s victories in the 2015 and 2019 general elections.
“I sympathise with President Muhammadu Buhari, the entire leadership and members of our party.
I also commiserate with Government and people of Edo State on the loss of their illustrious son.
“I pray that God will grant him eternal rest and give the immediate family and friends the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.”
It will be recalled Prince Momoh died in Abuja on Monday at the age of 81.
Meanwhile, Nigerian film actor, Femi Branch, has revealed the name of a hotel in Ogun State where cameras were found planted in guest rooms as ‘Pavilion hotel’.
Naija News had reported earlier that hotel guests discovered five cameras secretly planted in the hotel rooms where they lodged in Ogun.
One of the hotel guests who co-founded the cameras said the cameras must have covered the nakedness of his mother and siblings who also lodged in the hotel.
