He was well respected by fellow African Diplomatic Corps members as he elevated the status of Nigerian and African Diplomacy.
He was so close to our Nigerian Community, eager to listen and address all issues with perfect wisdom.
He is always available and celebrated with the Nigerian Canadian Communities across several provinces and cities on every occasions and especially our yearly Nigerian mega picnic.
He was a friend to all. The Nigerian Community across Canada will miss him, the Canadian Diplomatic community will miss him, we pray that his family and the community will be able to bear his loss at this tragic moment.
