Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State on Sunday in Port Harcourt paid a condolence visit on his Rivers State counterpart, Nyesom Wike, over the demise of Wike’s Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Chief Emmanuel Chinwe Aguma.
Governor Tambuwal paid glowing tribute to late Chief Aguma, regretting that “Rivers State and indeed Nigeria has lost a great legal mind, a rare gem who made immeasurable contributions to the advancement of the legal profession and Nigeria’s democracy.”
He urged the family of late Chief Aguma and the people of Rivers State to be consoled by the fact that he served the state and Nigeria in a very professional way and left a legacy worthy of emulation.
In his response, Wike thanked Tambuwal for the show of love and sharing in the grief of the Rivers people.
He described his departed Attorney General as a very competent, committed and loyal chief law officer who will be very difficult to replace.
Wike disclosed that the burial rites of late Chief Aguma will begin on September 14 and end on September 15, 2018 when he will be buried.
