Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Tony Anenih has described the first national chairman of PDP, Chief Solomon Lar as a great emancipator who dedicated his life to the peace and unity of the country even as he urged the Federal government to adequately immortalize him.
Anenih stated this on Monday while speaking at the Night of Tributes held in honour of late Lar.
“Lar deserves the best we can do to immortalize him; his family members deserve the best we can do to assist them.
“I like to take advantage of this opportunity to advise that the Federal Government should try to recognize prominent Nigerians who have contributed to the development of this nation in their chosen fields of endeavour, especially while they are alive.
“The families of such prominent citizens should not be abandoned after their death. The family of Lar should therefore not be abandoned. We owe his family an unfailing love as a Government and as a Party.
“I join all of you, who have paid tributes to Chief Lar, in celebrating his worthy life of solid political legacy; and, my epitaph for him as he goes home in a blaze of glory is: “Here goeth Solomon Daushep Lar; when cometh another?”
