Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State has commiserated with the Director of News of TVC, Mrs. Stella Din, on the death of his father, Captain Joseph Din (rtd).
Captain Din, who retired from the Nigeria Army Ordinance Corps, Yaba, Lagos as a Commander, died weekend at the age of 84.
A statement issued by Governor Uzodimma’s Chief Press Secretary/Media Adviser, Oguwike Nwachuku, described the late Din as a detribalized Nigerian and a democrat, whose services were highly cherished.
The governor said that Nigeria, Plateau State, where Din hails from, the Nigerian Army and indeed, the All Progressives Congress (APC) family where he played leadership role as Chairman of APC Elders’ Advisory Council in Plateau State would miss him sorely.
The governor also said that his thought and that of the government and people of Imo State were with the Din’s family at this critical time, particularly the widow and urged them to lean on God for courage to bear the huge loss.
“That Capt. Din contributed immensely for the unity of this country, the development of his state, Plateau, the advancement of the ideals of the Nigerian Army and the upbringing of worthy and responsible children, is an indication that his legacy speaks volume,” the governor said.
He also prayed God to grant the deceased’s soul peaceful repose and the family, friends, associates the fortitude to bear the loss.
