I have received barrage of phone calls, all of which have conveyed the rude and shocking news to me that Granville Isetima Abibo SAN died this morning. My immediate reaction was that of total disbelief because I did not in any way see it coming. The confirmation of the news shattered and devastated me. Then pain set in. This is one death too many. Death, you have created a big vacuum that would be too hard to fill. Why? Why Granville Abibo?
I have had a sustained relationship with Granville for over Twenty (20) years. Granville was an extraordinary friend. His commitment to relationship is unsurpassable. He valued, nurtured, and sustained our relationship continually and continuously. I am yet unable to say *”Good Night”* to Granville. Granville was until his death one of our Generals in Team DASAN
To all members of Team DASAN Nationwide, I hereby direct that we suspend immediately further consultations and engagements on the ongoing Electoral process of the NBA in honour and respect of the person of our great Friend for the next Twenty-Four (24) hours. My heartfelt condolences to his wife; children; the staff of Granville Abibo & Co.; members of Nigerian Bar Association, Port-Harcourt Branch; the Body of Senior Advocates of Nigeria; and members of Team DASAN Nationwide.
I pray that God will grant us all the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.
