Joseph Wayas was a consummate politician and democrat, detribalized Nigerian


Former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar has reacted to the demise of the former Senator Joseph Wayas.

In a press release signed by his media office on Thursday, Atiku describes Wayas, who was President of the Senate in the Second Republic as a consummate politician and democrat, and a detribalized Nigerian.

The former Vice President noted that the late Wayas contributed in no small measure to the enthronement of democracy in Nigeria and will, forever be remembered as one who served the country well and served his people with passion.

“The legacy of his political beliefs and triumphs will be important footnotes in the literature of Nigeria’s government and politics for generations yet to come,” Atiku said.

The former Vice President prays to God to stand by the bereaved family, as well as the government and people of Cross River to bear the loss of a patriarch and statesman with fortitude.
