Mark, in a statement signed by his Media aide, Paul Mumeh, said that the late politician was an uncommon activist and defender of the ordinary man.

“The deceased was a great patriot. He was an advocate for peace and justice. A voice for the voiceless.

“He was bluntly frank, courageous and steadfast. He never shied away from fighting for justice. He called a spade its proper name,” Mark said.

The former Senate president said Nigeria had lost an honest and patriotic statesman.
