The Minister of Information and Culture,  Lai Mohammed, has paid a condolence visit to the family of Justin Abuah, the Director of Information in the state house, who passed on recently.

The minister was accompanied on the visit by top management of the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture including Bayo Onanuga, the Managing Director of the News Agency of Nigeria; Emmanuel Agbegir, State House Director of Public Communication; and Peter Dama, the Director, Protocol and Public Relations.

Mohammed described the late Abuah as a dutiful and highly effective worker who spent a greater part of his career in the State House. He appealed to his colleagues to emulate his legacy of service to the nation.

He noted that Abuah’s death was painful but urged the family to put their trust in God and to find consolation in the fact that the deceased left behind a rich legacy.



    The minister said to the deceased wife: “After a few days, nobody will come here again but God will remain with you and the children and He will guide you aright and he will provide for your needs.

    “Put your faith in God and be strong. God will be with you. You will reap from his (Abuah’s) goodwill.”

    Elder brother to the deceased, Arnold Abuah, thanked the Minister and his delegation, on behalf of the family, for identifying with them in their most difficult period.

    Abuah, was born on January 29, 1959, and died on Sunday, August 14, 2016, in Abuja after a brief illness.
