Jonathan Describes His Late CSO as a Man Deeply Committed to Service

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 Obua’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: “Gordon’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.

“My 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.”

In comforting the family members, Jonathan further noted that “Gordon left undying legacies of honesty, forthrightness, godly devotion and
care for the less privileged.”
