According to a statement on Monday by Garba Shehu, presidential spokesperson, Buhari described Ude as “an advocate of religious tolerance”.

The president also highlighted Ude’s “significant contributions to the creation of Anambra, Ebonyi and Delta States” and prayed for “to Allah to forgive his shortcomings and reward his good deeds with paradise”.

“One of the most unostentatious philanthropists in the country who worked for humanity without making any noise about it. Doing goodness without bragging about it is one of the greatest virtues, and the late Abdulazeez Ude had passed such a test of humility with distinction,” Buhari was quoted as saying.
