President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed shock and grief over the death of the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Chief Ufot Ekaette, describing him as “a consummate administrator and bridge builder”.

President Buhari, in a condolence message issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, in Abuja on Thursday, noted that the deceased ”dedicated himself to duty in the course of his distinguished public service.”

Buhari said late Ekaette was ”a gentleman who had given his best in the service of his country”,

He consoled with the Ekaette family, the government and people of Akwa Ibom over the death, and assured them that deceased would always be remembered for his remarkable public service record and immense contributions towards bringing peace in the once-troubled Niger Delta region.
