Yar’Adua was peace loving – Etiebet

By Dapo Akinrefon

FORMER Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources, Chief Don Etiebet, yesterday described late President Umaru Yar’Adua as a great and peace loving president who will be missed by Nigerians.

Paying his tribute to the late Yar’Adua, Chief Etiebet said the late president will be remembered for his commitment to solving the Niger Delta debacle, adding that “he was a great and peace loving president who sincerely took the problems of the whole of Nigeria to heart.

 His bold and courageous commitment to solving the Niger Delta and electoral problems which are very fundamental to Nigeria’s political and economic stability and prowess stood him out in the front of our leaders.

Accordingly, he said “I 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.”
