 Abuja -  President Goodluck Jonathan has said that he received the death of the former Deputy Vice Chancellor of the University of Benin, Prof. Omo Omoruyi, with "great sadness’’.

This is contained in a statement issued on Monday in Abuja and signed by Dr Reuben Abati, the Special Adviser to the Presidential on Media.

"Jonathan said that Omoruyi’s contributions to the nation’s political development would be long remembered.

"He commiserated with Omoruyi’s family and the Government and people of Edo State on the loss of the ``very distinguished academic and illustrious citizen,’’ he said.
