The Coalition of United Political Parties, CUPP, has expressed shock over the sudden death of the National Chairman of Labour Party, Alhaji Abdulkadir Abdusalam, who died on Tuesday.
This was issued in a statement by the Coalition’s Co-Spokesperson, Comrade Mark Adebayo.
The statement read, “We received the sudden death of Alhaji A. A. Salam with utter shock and total disbelief. A. A. Salam was a major pillar and voice who formed the CUPP and remained committed to its ideals until he breathed his last.
“A very accommodating, intelligent, experienced, generous and patriotic leader, A. A. Salam was a true democrat and a fighter for justice. He was a father to all and always focused on anything he believed was right and just. He was always available whenever his leadership and experience were needed and never shirked any responsibility he was assigned to. Alhaji Salam was a man with a good spirit, caring, loving and always positive. His doors were always open to all irrespective of different political persuasions. We have lost a giant in the political space of Nigeria.
“We express our sincere condolences to his esteemed family and commisserate with his Party, political associates and friends all over the world. This is a very sad day for the Coalition members of CUPP and a big loss for democracy and Nigeria as a whole. His sudden demise was also a personal loss to some of us who were very close to hom. May his soul rest in perfect peace. After due consultations, the CUPP will make further information available to the public.”
