The Presidency through the Special Adviser to the President, on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari’s appointment of the widow of late Dr. Chuba Okadigbo, Margery Okadigbo as the Chairman of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited, NNPC, proves that he “never forgets a good turn. He repays every kindness, every justice done to him, as much as it lies in his power”, Page 36 learnt.
Adesina revealed this in a piece on Friday, titled: ‘PMB: Kind to the living and the dead’.
He added: “When you show kindness to the living, it is a good thing, something to applaud. But when you go further to do the same to the dead, it is something that places you on a very high pedestal; a man to be emulated, acclaimed, a blessed of the Lord.
“In his first outing in 2003, Buhari ran with the former Senate President, Dr. Chuba Okadigbo, as Vice Presidential Candidate. They both challenged the result of the election, and were determined to get justice. But in September of that year, Okadigbo died. Very painful.
“Now, 19 years later, who has Buhari made Chairman of the NNPC Ltd. Board? Margery, Okadigbo’s widow.”
