I’ll greatly miss Tony Momoh, Buhari mourns

President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed grief at the death of his longtime ally, friend, political loyalist and former Minister of Information and Culture, Prince Tony Momoh.
Reacting to the incident via a press statement on Monday, President Buhari said Prince Momoh stood with him through thick and thin, stating that “his brand of loyalty is very rare in the politics of today. I will greatly miss him.”
The President recalled that as chairman, Media and Publicity of the All Nigeria People’s Party (ANPP) Campaign Organisation in the 2003 and 2007 elections as well as Chairman of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), the late Auchi Prince contributed in no small measure to the growth and strengthening of the organizations, leading to the eventual formation of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
“President Buhari commiserated with the media industry on the loss of a veteran who put in a lot to raise the bar of the profession in various ways as editor, manager, administrator, President and Trustee of the Guild of Editors, urging them to sustain his legacies.
“While also condoling with the Auchi Kingdom, the government and people of Edo State on this great loss, the President prayed that God will grant the departed eternal rest and comfort family, friends and political associates in this period of grief”, said the statement issued by presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina.
