DR Kayode Ajulo, SAN, has described the death of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chieftain, Cairo Ojougbo, as shocking, while paying tributes to the former House of Representatives member.
Ajulo, in a statement in Abuja on Friday, said Ojougbo was a vibrant member of the house of representatives.
He added that Ojougbo stood strong and was a voice of reason in the chaotic throng, adding that he was passionate and pragmatic, his heart ablaze, for Nigeria’s progress in myriad ways.
The legal practitioner said the deceased served his nation with an unwavering stance.
Ojougbo reportedly died after Nigeria secured a penalty kick against South Africa at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in a semi-final match.
Ajulo said that a football match, which should be a moment of delight, yet destiny’s twist cast shadows in the night while patriotically watching Nigeria and South Africa contend, met a sudden end.
“But let us not mourn, for his spirit shall remain in the hearts he touched, where memories sustain.”
He said Ojougho was a profound and epic tale of a life that would resound. (NAN)
