Hon. Salome Acheju Abuh, was a courageous People Democratic Party (PDP) Woman Leader in Ofu Local Government Area of Kogi State, Nigeria.
She was born on 17th November 1959 and paid political Supreme Price by been “BURNT ALIVE” by hired/unmasked political thugs of the All Progressive Congress (APC), on 18th November 2019, (a day, after her 60th Birth Day), in her Matrimonial House, Ochadamu, for doggedness, forthrightness and delivering her Local Government, Ofu, to her Party, PDP during the November 2019 Gubernatorial Election in Kogi State.
Four Houses: 5bedrooms, 4bedrooms, and 2Nos 2bedrooms, all fully furnished, in the family compound, were burnt to asses along with her, in addition to other key PDP members’ houses in Ochadamu.
She was laid to rest on 7th December 2019, at Oja’ji Obala, her ancestral home, in Ofu Local Government Area of same State,
A Martyr, Political Celebrity and an Institution who suffered this fate for democracy in Nigeria, in our opinion, should continue to be remembered by immortalizing her name through this Foundation “Salome Acheju Abuh Foundation” with ”Positive Mindset..” as its Motto, to be able to carry on, on her legacies of grass-root support and mobilization, devoid of anti-social vises with a view to achieving peaceful society through mind/character resetting and re-orientation activities as enunciated in the registered objectives of this purely apolitical Foundation.
As she continued to be remembered in democratic history/struggles in Nigeria and beyond, we therefore call on all well spirited Organisations and individuals around the globe, to learn the Foundation supporting hands to achieve the dreams of immortalization of Late Hon. Salome Acheju Abuh with a view to continuing on her legacies of grass-root, community development and mobilization activities for sustainable positive character re-orientations in our societies, with relation to the sustainable development goals.
