FORMER Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, Chief Don Etiebet, yesterday described late President Umaru Yarâ€™Adua as a great and peace loving president who will be missed by Nigerians.
Paying his tribute to the late Yarâ€™Adua, Chief Etiebet said the late president will be remembered for his commitment to solving the Niger Delta debacle, adding that â€œhe was a great and peace loving president who sincerely took the problems of the whole of Nigeria to heart.
Â His bold and courageous commitment to solving the Niger Delta and electoral problems which are very fundamental to Nigeriaâ€™s political and economic stability and prowess stood him out in the front of our leaders.
Accordingly, he said â€œI mourn his sad demise. I mourn that ill health and ultimately death did not allow him to translate his innovative vision and mission fully into realities.”
