Buhari mourns Eddie Ugbomah
President Muhammadu Buhari has joined the entertainment industry, particularly moviemakers, in mourning veteran filmmaker, Eddie Ugbomah, who died at 78.
President Buhari also condoled with family, friends and associates of the ace actor, director and producer, whose contribution to the development of Nigeria’s film industry remains indelible, starting with studies and training in London, before returning in the 1970’s to promote drama and movies.
He said Ugbomah was not only a gifted story teller, but also a social commentator and activist, as the themes of his stage and tube presentations explored narratives that directly impacted many lives and advocated better government policies and programmes.
In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina yesterday, President Buhari prayed God to grant Ugbomah’s soul eternal rest and comfort his family.
