Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State has commiserated with the Director of News of TVC, Mrs. Stella Din, on the death of her father, Cpt. Joseph Din (rtd).
Din, who retired from the Nigeria Army Ordinance Corps, Yaba, Lagos as a commander, died last weekend at the age of 84.
A statement by Governor Uzodimma’s Chief Press Secretary/Media Adviser, Oguwike Nwachuku, described Din as a detribalised Nigerian and a democrat, whose services were cherished.
The governor said Nigeria, Plateau State where the late Din hailed from, the Army and indeed the All Progressives Congress (APC) family where he played leadership role as chairman of APC Elder’s Advisory Council in Plateau State, will miss him.
He said his thought and that of the government and people of Imo State “are with the Din’s family at this critical time, particularly the widow” and urged them to lean on God for courage to bear the huge loss.
“That Capt. Din contributed to the unity of this country, the development of his state, Plateau, the advancement of the ideals of the Army and the upbringing of worthy and responsible children, is an indication that his legacy speaks volume,” the governor said.
