Bukola Saraki, Abuja Residents Pay Last Respects To Adesanmi

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki led some residents of the Federal  Capital  Territory (FCT), Abuja to pay last  respects to Pius Adesanmi,  the Nigerian – born Canadian Professor who was among the passengers on the ill – fated Ethiopian Airlines flight that crashed on it’s way to Nairobi,  Kenya, on Sunday.

At the Unity Fountain, different people  mostly dressed in black and teary – eyed, recounted how the professor touched their lives in numerous ways.

Saraki while speaking at the event described Adesanmi as an Ambassador of Nigeria, he said the Professor “did not die in vain.”

“As I was leaving my house  somebody said,  ‘Sir,  do you know that he was very  critical of you?’ I said we are not enemies, we share different views  and we must appreciate his talent. He had his views, he had his thoughts about  some of us,” he said.

“We can learn  from  some of these things and that is why I came here to join you and appreciate those that are good Ambassadors of this country. Let his wife and daughter know  that their husband  and father did not die in vain.”, he said.
