Peter Obi, the presidential candidate for the Labour Party (LP), has joined the rest of the world in expressing grief at the passing of the British Queen Elizabeth.
The former governor expressed his sorrow over the passing of the late queen and sent his thoughts to the royal family via his verified social media accounts.
“I am saddened to hear of the passing on of Queen Elizabeth II, the longest reigning monarch of the United Kingdom. My thoughts and prayers are with the Royal Family, the entire United Kingdom and the Commonwealth nations, over this irreplaceable loss.
“Hers was an impactful reign and beautiful and explored life devoted to democratic ideals, charity, selflessness and empathy. She will always be remembered by the lives, organisations, institutions and countries she positively touched during her reign. May she rest in eternal peace,” he wrote.
On Thursday night, Buckingham Palace revealed that Queen Elizabeth II had died “peacefully” at Scotland’s Balmoral Castle.
The message also stated that King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla would spend this Thursday night at Balmoral before departing for London on Friday.
A statement from Buckingham Palace earlier on Thursday afternoon stated that doctors “advised that she be placed under medical monitoring.”
Princes Charles and William, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Harry were among the royal family members who visited.
