The All Progressives Congress, APC, has said that late Prince Abubakar Audu, was an irreplaceable politician.
The Acting National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr Timi Frank disclosed this in a statement on Monday in Abuja.
The statement noted that the party has been in pain, shock and grief since the unfortunate demise of the strong Kogi politician.
“To say that we are shocked and dumbfounded at Audu’s death is to scratch our pains on the surface as the Kogi Prince typified what a real democrat radiates.
“A politician who chose to remain in opposition after losing his governorship in 2003 in spite of intimidations on him and rather chose to see the nation get its deserved change in leadership.
“The late Prince Audu remains irreplaceable not only in the politics of Kogi where he strode like a colossus but also in the firmament of our nation’s political history,” the party said.
The statement added, “We are hurt by his demise as we are sure that the late would-be governor would have emerged the best governor again and restored all that the locusts have eaten in Kogi State.”
