Activist Chukwuma Fought For Transparency, Buhari Mourns

The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Sunday mourned the death of a civil society leader, Innocent Chukwuma, who he described as a credible voice of transparency.

He said Chukwuma, who was working his regime through the civil society organisation, CLEEN Foundation, to monitor the spending of the last tranche of $311m repatriated funds recovered from former Head of State, Gen. Sani Abacha, died when the nation needed his services most.

Buhari’s condolence message was contained in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, titled “Innocent Chukwuma was a credible voice of transparency, says President Buhari.”

The President was quoted as saying that “His (Chukwuma’s) demise will be badly felt because of his great contributions to our efforts to ensure transparency and good governance under our democratic system.”

Buhari said the deceased would be remembered for his remarkable record and dedication to the cause of good governance, transparency and accountability in Africa.
