Pdp Eulogises Late Victor Uwaifo, Urges Federal Government To Immortalize Him

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday expressed shock and sadness by the death of highlife music maestro, sculptor, and academician, Sir Victor Uwaifo.

In a statement on Sunday by Kola Ologbondiyan, National Publicity Secretary of the party, he said, “Victor Uwaifo Ph.D., was a highly talented Nigerian, who used his music, intellect, and creativity to promote unity and peaceful co-existence as well as our rich cultural heritage as a people.”

He said, “Guitar Boy” as Victor Uwaifo was popularly called, was a rare gem; a nationalist, who, for decades, ruled the airwaves, and used his music and arts to propagate the message of hope, faith, hard work, honesty, tolerance, and patriotism; and left resounding legacies that will remain evergreen even for generations yet unborn.

According to the statement, Victor Uwaifo placed our nation on the world map when he won the Gold Disc Record with his popular hit, Joromi.

“His contributions to nation-building earned him the national merit honors of Member of the Order of the Niger (MON), the first musician in Nigeria to be so decorated.

“His versatility was further brought to bear as a commissioner in Edo state as well as a lecturer in the University of Benin, Edo State,” the statement said.

He said despite his towering attainments, Uwaifo remained humble, accessible, selfless, and always dedicated to service.

Ologbondiyan further said PDP was grieved that the legendary Nigerian left the stage at this time when the nation needs his wealth of experience, especially in mentoring the younger generation of Nigerians, is needed the most.

The party urged the Federal Government to take steps to immortalize Victor Uwaifo for his contributions to national development.

He said the party commiserates with the Uwaifo family, Governor Godwin Obaseki, the government and people of Edo State as well as the music industry.

It prayed to God to grant eternal rest to the departed and the family, the fortitude to bear the loss.
