Momoh brand of loyalty is rare – Buhari



President BuhariPresident Muhammadu Buhari has expressed sadness at the passing of his longtime ally, friend, political loyalist, and former Minister of Information and Culture, Prince Tony Momoh.

According to a statement by Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, Mr. Buhari, reacting to the news, noted that Momoh stood with him through thick and thin, adding that ‘his brand of loyalty is very rare in the politics of today. I will greatly miss him.’

The President recalled that as chairman, Media and Publicity of the All Nigeria People’s Party (ANPP) Campaign Organisation in the 2003 and 2007 elections as well as Chairman of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), the late Auchi Prince contributed in no small measure to the growth and strengthening of the organizations, leading to the eventual formation of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

President Buhari commiserated with the media industry on the loss of a veteran who put in a lot to raise the bar of the profession in various ways as an editor, manager, administrator, President, and Trustee of the Guild of Editors, urging them to sustain his legacies.

While also condoling with the Auchi Kingdom, the government, and people of Edo State on the great loss, the President prayed that God will grant the departed eternal rest and comfort family, friends, and political associates in this period of grief.
