The President in a statement issued by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, further said, “Doing goodness without bragging about it is one of the greatest virtues and the late Abdulaziz Udeh had passed such a test of humility with distinction.”

According to Buhari, “we also have to give credit to the deceased because of his significant contributions to the creation of Anambra, Ebonyi and Delta States by being one of the signatories or advocates for that effort.”

He said, “apart from his philanthropic activities, the late Alhaji Udeh was also an advocate of religious tolerance who didn’t discriminate against anyone because of religious differences.”

The President prayed to God to forgive the shortcomings of the deceased and reward his good deeds with paradise.
