“Pastor Aginighan, a former Acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) lived responsibly, touched many lives positively and was well respected by our people. He was a very good brother and man of God who just loved to do good.
“His untimely death in a car accident that also took the life of his wonderful son, Tammy Aginighan, and a security personnel is a very painful and shocking loss to our people.
“It is difficult for us to come to terms with the reality that Pastor Aginighan is no more. This must explain why very many people prayed that the bad news should turn out to be untrue.
“He was an extraordinary voice of reason and peace. A bridge builder with deep wisdom. Words fail us that the good man of God left us the way it happened.
“But who are we to question the Almighty God? We can only pray for the Holy Spirit to comfort our beloved brother’s very dear family and everyone who experienced his good nature.”
