As the family of the late Gordon Obua, ex-Chief Security Officer (CSO) to former President Goodluck Jonathan, gets set to bury him this weekend, the former president has described Obua as a man that showed deep commitment to service.
In a tribute to the late CSO who died last month, Jonathan noted that Obuaâ€™s death was very painful, given that he still had so much to offer to his people and nation.
Jonathan said further in a statement signed by his spokesman, Ikechukwu Eze, that Obua was a man with whom he struck good
relationship. The former president said: â€œGordonâ€™s case is even more painful because his end came too soon. He was a man who still had so much to give to his family, community and country.
â€œMy staff for eight years, Gordon was one man with whom I established close kinship, not because he was from my own part of the country, but because he showed deep commitment to service.â€
In comforting the family members, Jonathan further noted that â€œGordon left undying legacies of honesty, forthrightness, godly devotion and
care for the less privileged.â€
