President Muhammadu Buhari has sent his commiserations to the family of former Chief of Army Staff, David Ejoor.
Ejoor, a former Military Governor at the old Mid-Western Region passed away on Sunday and encomiums have since been pouring in as Nigerians hailed him for a life well lived.
In a statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, he wrote;
”As the first Governor of Mid-Western Region, during one of the darkest years in the nation’s history, and first indigenous Commandant of the Nigerian Defence Academy, who also held many other national leadership positions, the President regards Gen. Ejoor, as a hardworking military officer whose loyalty, commitment and dedication to the unity of the country were never in doubt.
“President Buhari affirms that the former army chief, who was once the President-General of the Urhobo Progress Union, will be long remembered and honoured as a man of positive character and vision, who provided profound inspiration to countless military officers and Nigerians that came in close contact with him.”
