The President who said he received the sad news with a heavy heart, on behalf of himself and the Federal Government, enjoined the Attah family to take solace in the fact that late Mrs. Attah lived a good life characterized by love and care for the family and service to mankind.
“The particular attention she paid to the welfare and health of children in Akwa Ibom State under her Child Development Trust programme which touched several lives will always be remembered by the beneficiaries,” he said of Mrs. Attah.
President Jonathan prayed that God will grant Obong Victor Attah good health to keep the memory of his late spouse alive and the fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss.
Also President Jonathan has felicitated with former President Olusegun Obasanjo on his appointment as the Country Representative for Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust.
The President in a congratulatory letter to Chief Obasanjo, expressed confidence that in this new honorific position, the former President would through his “wide network of contacts across the Commonwealth, ensure that the Trust generates the resources required to fund legacy projects in the name of Queen Elizabeth.”
President Jonathan while wishing the former President success in his new endeavour, said that he considered the appointment not only a personal honour to Chief Obasanjo, but also to Nigeria as a country.
