Central Working committee of Medical and Health Workers’ Union describes late Silas Adamu as a nationalist.
Adamu, who is the Secretary General of the union died in a ghastly motor accident on the Abuja – Kaduna expressway on Monday, the 8th of March, 2021.
The accident also claimed the lives of his wife Mrs. Mercy Adamu and daughter Miss Kubai Joy Adamu.
“In his death the union has indeed lost an illustrious son, a patriot, nationalist and detribalised figure whose friendship and association cut across ethnic and religious lines. He remained passionate about the unity and development of the union until he died. He always advocated for education and investment in human capital as fundamentals for our advancement into a peaceful and prosperous union.
“Comrade Silas has gone but the lives he touched positively will remain worthy ambassadors for the virtues he stood for in his admirable life time. His legacies of absolute loyalty to his principals and humble disposition towards his staff and associates will surely continue to contribute to the betterment of humanity as a whole.”
Late Comrade Silas Adamu joined the services of the union on the 1st of August, 2000 as Principal Organizing Secretary and rose to become the Secretary General in September, 2015.
