Minister of Labour and Employment, Sen. Chris Ngige, on Friday described the late former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Chief Ojo Maduekwe, as someone who was philosophical in thinking and logical in his disposition.
In a condolence message, Ngige stated that the death of the former minister was devastating given his enormous contributions to national unity and development.
He said: “The sudden death of the former Minister of Transport, Chief Ojo Maduekwe, is a huge loss to the country.
“Nigeria has lost a brilliant technocratic and a hard-working politician who was philosophical in thinking and logical in disposition.
“Ojo was sophisticated in knowledge and brutally frank, but devoid of intellectual arrogance. Such a genre is often uncommon among the political class; hence, he was often misunderstood.” .
