Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has commiserated with the family of a late Nigerian-born Canadian professor, writer, literary critic, satirist, and columnist, Pius Adesanmi, who was among the 157 passengers and crew members that died in a plane crash on Sunday.
The Ethiopian Airlines plane crashed on Sunday morning six minutes after leaving Addis Ababa for Nairobi in Kenya.
Speaking via his Twitter handle, Atiku noted that the academic scholar would be fondly remembered for bringing scholarships to progressive advocacy.
What he said:
Professor Pius Adesanmi will be remembered for how he brought scholarship to progressive advocacy. His numerous followers on the social media will miss his insightful contribution towards a better Nigeria. I pray his soul will forever Rest In Peace.
