Lawan mourns former Head of Interim National Govt, Ernest Shonekan

The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has mourned former Head of the Interim National Government, Chief Ernest Shonekan, who died on Tuesday at the age of 85.

Lawan condoles with Chief Shonekan’s family, the Government and people of Ogun State over the death of the former Nigerian leader.

“My condolences go to the family of Chief Shonekan, the Government and people of Ogun State and entire Nigeria over this great loss.

“Chief Shonekan was a lawyer, business captain, boardroom guru and statesman. But he will be most remembered for heeding the nation’s call to duty at a very turbulent period in the history of Nigeria.

“Chief Shonekan’s services as Chairman of the Transitional Council and later as Head of the Interim National Government were selfless and contributed greatly to saving the Nigerian ship from hitting the rock,” Lawan says.

The Senate President prays for the sweet repose of the soul of the elder statesman and for his loved ones the fortitude to bear his loss.
