Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has described the death of former Lagos State Commissioner of Sports, Prince Ademola Adeniji-Adele, as a loss not only to Lagos State and his family, but also the pro-democracy community in the country.
In a tribute issued by his media office in Abuja, Thursday, the chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) said that the late Adeniji-Adele would be remembered for his gallant role to free Nigeria from a repressive military rule during the era of the late General Sani Abacha.
“It is on record that he did not criticise military rule from a safe distance, but joined the determined and like-minded group of Nigerians who stood in the firing line to extricate democracy from the shackles of military dictatorship.”
According to Atiku, Nigerians are today enjoying the fruits of the sacrifices made by pro-democracy activists like the late Adeniji-Adele who stood up to military despotism at a time one’s life would be snuffed out with impunity.
The former Vice President said as a valiant soldier of democracy, Adeniji-Adele’s contributions and sacrifices to that noble cause would not be forgotten by fellow Nigerians.
