INEC commissioner, Prof. Salau, dies


One of the National Commissioners with the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Prof. Muritala Salau, is dead.
Salau, a Professor of Physics, was a former Vice-Chancellor of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso.
The 67-year-old passed on at the Turkish Hospital, Abuja, where he went to treat a sickness.
Salau, who died on Saturday, has been buried at the Muslim cemetery, Moniya, Ibadan in line with Muslim rites.
A fellow National Commissioner of INEC, Prof. Lai Olurode, described Salau as an enigma, who touched the lives of several people that he came across.
Olurode said, “I recall the last night I shared with him in Uyo during one of our workshops at INEC. He spoke glowingly. Professor Attahiru Jega had him flown from Uyo to Abuja when he took ill. It is very painful to lose such a nice man.
“During our last night together, he spoke so glowingly on providence. You can see a reflection of his humanity in the turnout of people from INEC, LAUTECH and the Obafemi Awolowo University.”
