Founder and president of the Oodua People’s Congress, OPC, Dr. Frederick Fasehun has described the demise of Dr. Tunji Braithwaite as a personal loss of a fellow soldier.
The OPC leader said that the former presidential candidate of the National Advanced Party, NAP, was a “personal friend and fellow democrat.”
A press statement issued by the media consultant to the OPC leader, Felix Oboagwina, said Fasehun and Braithwaite had an unparalleled passion for the development of Yoruba land and people in particular and Nigeria in general.
“He was a legal luminary, human rights gladiator, constructive commentator and selfless philanthropist,” said Fasehun, who is also national chairman of the Unity Party of Nigeria, UPN.
“In Braithwaite’s death I have lost a fellow soldier,” Fasehun said, adding that “his death is a sad and painful death. He should not have died at this time of Nigeria’s political history, when the country needs patriots, zealots and visionaries like him. People like Braithwaite have the patriotic zeal and vision capable of moving the nation forward.
“We wish the family the strength to bear this monumental loss.”
