No condolence message from Buhari , El-Rufai five days after CBN ex-deputy gov Mailafia's death - Punch Newspapers
The most widely read newspaper in Nigeria
23 September 2021“Hunted alive, not honoured in death.” This phrase, perhaps, succinctly captured the story of a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Dr. Obadiah Mailafia, who died in the early hours of Sunday, September 19, 2021.Mailafia died at the age of 64 at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada, after a brief illness.
His death shocked many Nigerians who looked up to him for his audacious voice against perceived official tardiness that has contributed to the crisis being experienced in certain sectors of the national life, including the economy.Many leading organisations, including the Northern Governors Forum; Christian Association of Nigeria, Southern Kaduna People’s Union, Arewa Consultative Forum, National Consultative Front, amongst others, have since mourned the passing of the developmental economist.
However, in an unusual departure from the norm, the Presidency and the apex bank where Mailafia served as deputy governor between May 2005 and March 2007, have kept mum.Though the Presidency has not issued any condolence message on the death of Mailafia five days after, it has condoled with legendary juju singer, Sunday Adegeye aka King Sunny Ade, on the death of his wife, Risikat Adegeye, who died on Tuesday. headtopics.com
The Presidency had also expressed sadness over the death of the Emir of Gaya, Ibrahim Abdulkadir, who died on Wednesday, September 22, a clear four days after Mailafia’s demise.This is even as the administration had also congratulated, on September 21, the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, on his re-emergence after a hard fought snap election.
The Kaduna State Government, the home state of the deceased economist, has also not issued any condolence message on the demise of Mailfai; but the Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has described Mailafia as a true patriot, saying that his death was painful to Nigerians, especially the people of the Middle Belt.
Efforts to reach presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, proved abortive, as he neither took calls to his line nor replied to a text message sent by our correspondent on the matter.Also, efforts to reach the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed; as well as his spokesman, Segun Adeyemi, were unsuccessful as their lines were unreachable, while text messages sent to their lines were not replied as of press time.
Muyiwa Adekeye, Special Adviser on Media and Communication to Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, did not take calls to his line and did not reply to a text message sent by Read more: The Punch Newspapers »

He is a Christian of course, and he stood against injustice and oppression...he doesn't belong to the Muslim cabal, remember the first class chief hellrufai deleted, he was also vocal, Nigeria is turned northgeria, northgeria Hausa-Fulani Muslims are blood thirsty cult groups!
