Sultan describes late media investor, AbdulAzeez Ude, as nationalist

By Monsurudeen Olowoopejo

The Sultan of Sokoto and President-General, Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), Dr. Sa’ad Abubakar, has described late media investor, AbdulAzeez Ude, as a nationalist whose impact would be missed greatly across the country.

Abubakar said that the death of Ude, an Igbo Muslim personality and media investor, was received with a sense of grief that many that benefits from the philanthropist’s kind gesture many not be able to get such again.

The monarch, through a statement signed and released by Bashir Adefaka, said that the entire Muslim across Nigeria would miss the contribution of the media investor to human development.

According to him, Alhaji Ude had been known to me since when I was a young law enforcement officer in the Nigerian Army, having served in the Eastern part of the country.
He said all that he knew of the internationally renowned publisher, intellectual, and art lover, was that “his name had been synonymous with goodness”.
“We are offering our condolences to the family, government, and people of Anambra State and, indeed, the entire Muslim Ummah of Nigeria, for this sad loss of the great Muslim figure, quintessential administrator, nationalist, and philanthropist.”
Recalling Ude’s well-spent life as a businessman, industrialist, and billionaire, the Sultan believes that Ude, who solely funded media organisation and was acting Chairman of NEWSWATCH Magazine, remains a huge loss to Nigeria.

While adding that the deceased used his wealth for the advancement of humanity, he prayed that Allah grants his departed soul forgiveness and repose it in Al-Jannat Firdauz.
The monarch, meanwhile, prayed that Allah gives the surviving family members the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss occasioned by his demise.
