Abuja - The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed deep sadness over the death of former Special Adviser to the Vice President on Special Duties, Isaiah Balat.
The ex-Minister of Housing died aged 62 on Tuesday following an undisclosed illness.
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, in a statement described the death as a huge loss to the country.
The party added that Senator Balat left the scene at a time the nation needed his contributions the most.
“Senator Balat lived as a patriotic Nigerian and a brilliant technocrat who discharged his responsibilities with candor. Nigerians will remember him for his dedication to duty, humility, loyalty and commitment to the service of our dear fatherland.”
The statement also described him as an outstanding party-man who remained committed to the ideology and manifesto of the PDP and the visions of the founding fathers.
The party said the former minister played key roles in promoting the course of the PDP and handled all assignments given him by the party meritoriously.
