The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the South-West has described the death of former Minister of Commerce and Industry, Senator Jubril Martins-Kuye, as a loss to the party and the country as a whole.
The party, in a statement on Sunday, by its Zonal Director of Media and Publicity, Lere Olayinka, said; “The death of Senator Jibrin Martins-Kuye has deprived the PDP of one of its strongest pillars and greatest Iroko trees in its political forest.”
The PDP implored its members, especially those in Ogun State and the Martins-Kuye’s family to take solace in the fact that the deceased contributed his quotas to the development of the party and Nigeria as a whole.
The party said; “The death of Senator Jubril Martins-Kuye is no doubt a loss to us in the South-West PDP and we will continue to pray, trusting that God in His infinite mercies will grant his soul eternal rest.
“We urge our members and supporters, especially those in Ogun State to be consoled by the fact that he lived a fulfilled life worthy of emulation to the future generations of Nigerians.
“It is also our prayer that the good Lord will grant his family, friends and associates the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.
“May his soul rest in peace.”
