The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has extolled former Nigeria’s ambassador to the Kingdom of Spain, Ademola Rasaq Seriki.
The former Vice President who shared a condolence message with the family of the deceased said the late envoy served the country meritoriously.
In a statement signed by his Media Adviser, Paul Ibe, on Thursday and made available to The PUNCH, it partly read, “the late Ambassador Seriki was a patriot who served the country meritoriously in different capacities.”
Atiku further noted, “Ambassador Seriki was a consummate politician whose genteel mannerism bore a distinguishing trademark in all assignments he undertook.”
The PDP’s presidential candidate prayed for a gentle repose of the deceased soul and prayed for his family, associates, and Lagos State government to find the fortitude to bear the loss of an outstanding son.
