Former Military Head of State, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida, has mourned late Chief Tony Anenih, describing him as a charismatic elder statesman.
He said Anenih had a unique passion for providing solutions to governance for the country.
Babangida, in a statement by Abdulrauf Zubairu, his Media Aide and made available to NAN in Minna, said Anenih’s demise was a big loss to the political scene in Nigeria.
“Indeed Nigeria and Nigerians will greatly miss a political master strategist in the next political dispensation,” he said.
Babangida extended his condolences to the immediate family of late Anenih, the Oba of Benin, government and people of Edo as well as members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Anenih, former Chairman of PDP Board of Trustees, died on Sunday in Abuja.
