The sudden death of Professor Abubakar Momoh, Director General of the National Electoral Institute has been described as a big blow to the Labour Movement and an irreplaceable loss.
A statement released by the General Secretary of the Nigeria Labour Congress, Peter Ozo-Eson said; "in Professor Momoh, we have lost a true friend and an irrepressible ally.
"He was an intellectual titan, an uncommon progressive, a committed Unionist and a core nationalist.
"Professor Momoh was in the trenches with the working class as well as availed them his enormous intellectual resourcefulness when called upon to do so, even at very short notice.
"Our heart-felt condolences go to ASUU (where he was a National Treasurer at some point); INEC, and his inconsolable family.
May his soul rest in peace.
