PDP Mourns Former Head, Interim National Government, Ernest Shonekan
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) mourns the death of former Head of the defunct Interim National Government, Chief Ernest Shonekan, describing it as a national tragedy.
In his statement signed by National Public Secretary said Chief Shonekan was a very courageous, humble and patriotic leader; a bridge builder and extraordinary statesman, who dedicated his life and made immense sacrifices to ensure the unity and stability of our country in the heat of the political crisis that threatened our corporate existence as a nation following the annulment of the June 12, 1993 Presidential election.
The late Head of the Interim National Government was an accomplished personality and a visionary leader, whose efforts in applying his vast experience as a consummate lawyer and businessman to reposition our nation, despite the daunting challenges faced by his three-months regime between August and November 1993 cannot be forgotten.
Chief Shonekan’s commitment to the entrenchment of democracy was evident in his determination to restore the rule of law and transparency in governance. 
Even outside office, Chief Shonekan remained committed to the unity, stability and development of our nation. Our Party grieves that he left the stage at the time the nation needed his wealth of experience and wise counsel the most.
The PDP commiserates with the Federal Government, the government and people of Ogun State and the Shonekan family and prays to God to grant the nation and the bereaved family the fortitude to bear this huge national loss.
