Jonathan Mourns Tamuno, Ex-UI VC

President Goodluck Jonathan has commiserated with the Tamuno family of Okrika and the people of Rivers State on the death of former Vice Chancellor of the University of Ibadan, Emeritus Professor Tekena Tamuno

He described the deceased as one of the famous sons of Rivers State, one of the country’s most renowned historians and a first-rate intellectual and academic who stood out for many years.

In a statement by Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, Jonathan said Prof. Tamuno would be long remembered and honoured for his very significant contributions to national development over several decades.

“The Nigerian nation, the president notes, particularly owes the departed professor a huge debt of gratitude for his immense efforts in helping to document the history of the country’s foundation, growth and development for posterity.

“As they mourn the former president of the Nigerian Academy of Letters, President Jonathan urges his family, friends, associates and generations of students, within and outside the country, to also give thanks to God for his long and very fulfilled life of shining and enduring accomplishments,” the statement said.

“The president prays that God will comfort all who mourn Professor Tamuno and grant his gentle soul eternal rest,” the statement said.
