Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, Saturday, expressed sadness over the death of Nigeria’s Ambassador to the United States, Prof. Adebowale Ibidapo Adefuye, in Washington DC.

Saraki described the death as a monumental loss to Nigeria whose international image Adefuye passionately shaped and defended in the U.S until his last breath.

In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Sanni Onogu, in Abuja, Saraki said: “It is really sad that Adefuye waved us goodbye at a time his excellent services as a diplomat of repute are in dire need. His passionate advocacy and defense of Nigeria contributed immensely to Nigeria being declassified as “a country of interest” in America’s terrorism watch list following the Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s underwear bombing saga.

“We have lost an international defender. We have lost a strong voice at the international arena. However, it is inspiring that he died while rendering exemplary services to the fatherland.

“On behalf of the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, I salute late Adefuye for a life of remarkable achievements as an academic and diplomat. He fought a good fight and acquitted himself valiantly. I am so proud that he was an epitome of the true Nigerian spirit, but also very sad that he left us suddenly.”

Saraki prayed God to grant the soul of the deceased a peaceful rest and his family the grace to bear the irreparable loss.
