President Muhammadu Buhari has paid glowing tribute to renowned scholar and Akwa Ibom elder statesman, Eskor Toyo, describing him as a role model whose guiding principle was to live for the good of the less privileged.
As late Toyo is laid to rest tomorrow, Mr. Buhari, in a statement by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, said the renowned scholar would be long remembered as a fearless advocate who never stopped confronting the problems of social injustice, discrimination and poverty in Nigeria.
President Buhari added that with his tireless efforts and advocacy on many issues central to the prosperity of Nigeria, including social justice, human rights and the war against corruption, Mr. Toyo had left a most worthy and commendable legacy for other patriotic Nigerians to build upon.
The president said Mr. Toyo would be eternally honoured and celebrated for his life-long commitment to a better Nigeria and Africa, and as a fountain of knowledge who was a great mentor and role model to his students and admirers.
Mr. Buhari extends heartfelt condolences to the Toyo family, the government and people of Akwa Ibom State.
He prays to God to grant Mr. Toyo’s soul eternal rest and comfort his family, friends and admirers.
