OLUSEGUN OBASANJO (L), CHIEF SOLOMON LAR (C)

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has expressed grief over the death of Chief Solomon Lar, the pioneer National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party.

In a statement, which he personally signed and made available to newsmen in Abuja on Friday, Chief Obasanjo recalled that he became president under Lar’s chairmanship of PDP.

According to the former president, “Chief Solomon Lar was a man whose political career stretched from the military era through the present democratic dispensation”.

He added that Lar “made significant contributions to the re-establishment of democracy in Nigeria.

“His place will be very difficult to fill within his community, the state, the party and the nation.”

The ex-president prayed God to console the Lar family. (NAN)
