WADOO!!NEWS: Anyaoku mourns late Ambassador to US

Nigerian Ambassador to the U.S, Prof. Ade Adefuye

FORMER Commonwealth Secretary General, Chief Emeka Anyaoku yesterday expressed shock over the death of Nigeria’s Ambassador to the United States of America, Prof Ade Adefuye,  describing the deceased as an outstanding patriot and servant of Nigeria. He also said the late Adefuye brought great intellect and panache to Nigeria’s diplomatic representation abroad.

Anyaoku in a statement said the deceased was instrumental to the success of President Muhammadu Buhari’s recent visit to the United States of America.

His words: “I am dumbfounded by the news of the sudden death of Ambassador Ade Adefuye in Washington. Professor Adefuye was an accomplished scholar and diplomat. He brought great intellect and panache to Nigeria’s diplomatic representation abroad and reached the apogee of his outstanding service as the country’s Ambassador in Washington.

“Among his latest accomplishments was his brilliant orchestration with the officials of the United States government of the widely acknowledged successful visit of President Buhari to Washington in July 2015.

Before his appointment as Nigeria’s Ambassador to the United States of America, Professor Adefuye had served as the Nigerian High Commissioner in Jamaica with concurrent accreditation to some other Caribbean countries as well as Deputy High Commissioner in the United Kingdom.

“Adefuye had also served meritoriously for over eight years in the Commonwealth Secretariat in London where among his other duties he was, on many occasions, an effective emissary to Commonwealth African countries during my tenure as Secretary-General and that of my successor.

He also subsequently served as an officer in the ECOWAS Secretariat.   Ambassador Ade Adefuye was an outstanding patriot and servant of Nigeria. He will undoubtedly be fondly remembered by many former colleagues and associates in  Nigeria and abroad.”
