Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State on Monday expressed shock and sadness over the demise of a foremost nationalist and prominent lawyer, Dr Tunji Braithwaite.
Ambode, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Habib Aruna, said Braithwaite’s demise was a great loss to both the state and the nation.
According to his son, Olumide Braithwaite died in a Lagos hospital on Monday at the age of 82.
Ambode described the late nationalist as a detribalized individual whose example was worthy of emulation.
He said that Braithwaite was a man of the people, a typical Nigerian, who was consistent in saying things the way they were, not caring whose ox was gored.
