President Goodluck Jonathan has commiserated with the family of Nigeria’s first President, late Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe, over the death of its first son, Chukwuma Bamidele Azikiwe.

The President also extended condolences to the government and people of Anambra State.

“President Jonathan believes that the late Azikiwe, who was also the Owelle Onitsha, lived a fulfilled life by sustaining the humanitarian and leadership legacies of his father as a mobiliser, leader, philanthropist and a highly respected voice in his community.

“The President prays that the Almighty God will grant the soul of the departed peaceful rest, and comfort the family he left behind”, said Aso Rock in a statement by presidential spokesman, Reuben Abati, on Tuesday.
