President Muhammadu Buhari Monday expressed shock and grief over the demise of a foremost Igbo leader and philanthropist, Alhaji Abdulazeez Chibuzor Ude of Anambra State.
Buhari, in a statement by his media aide, Garba Shehu, described the late media investor as “one of the most unostentatious philanthropists in the country who worked for humanity without making any noise about it.”
“Doing goodness without bragging about it is one of the greatest virtues and the late Abdulazeez Ude had passed such a test of humility with distinction.
“We also have to give credit to the deceased because of his significant contributions to the creation of Anambra, Ebonyi and Delta States by being one of the signatories or advocates for that effort,” Buhari said.
He said apart from his philanthropic activities, the Late Ude was also an advocate of religious tolerance who didn’t discriminate against anyone because of religious differences.
