Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, has commiserated with the President of the United States of America, Mr Donald Trump, on the passage of former US President, Mr George W. Bush (Snr).
Obasanjo in a letter of condolence addressed to Trump said the death of Bush was not only a loss to his immediate family or the US but the world at large.
He described the late Bush as an astute administrator, an erudite international statesman, a great American hero and a political giant.
The former President further said that Bush’s tenure as America’s President marked a significant departure from traditional relations between Africa and the US.
“We join you and the American people in mourning the loss of a political giant, an astute administrator, a courageous leader, an erudite international statesman, and a great American hero.
“Though the world would miss him, his legacies would continue to inspire many to reach the highest points of their productive, political and creative abilities,” the letter reads.
