President Muhammadu Buhari, Wednesday paid glowing tributes to his long-time ally and friend, Professor Tamunoemi Sokari David-West, who served as Minister of Petroleum Resources between January 1984 and August 1985.

At the commendation service for the Ex-minister, held at the Chapel of Resurrection, University of Ibadan, the President said Prof David-West would be sorely missed for his integrity, sense of accountability, and radical opposition to corruption.

Buhari was represented at the event by Minister of State, Petroleum Resources, Timipre Sylva, and Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.

Deputy Director (Information) State House, Attah Esa said this in a statement in Abuja.

Buhari said, “The late Professor stood for all that was noble and just,” Buhari said through his Adviser on Media, adding: “He had an indomitable spirit, stood by whatever he believed in, and was very loyal. May his soul Rest In Peace.”

The President, in spite of that, urged Nigerian People to emulate the virtues of the Ex-minister, including his scrupulous commitment to scholarship, timeliness and loyalty to motherland.
