MWUN loses former Chapter President, Leke Sanni

The Maritime Workers Union of Nigeria (MWUN) has confirmed the death of Comrade Leke Sanni, who was a former president of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) Workers Branch of the union.

President General of the MWUN, Comrade Adewale Adeyanju who confirmed the death said that Comrade Sanni was on his way to church service when the incident happened.

“The wife confirmed to me that they were on their way to the church and he wanted to pick money from the ATM but on his way back to the car, he just slumped and before they could get to the hospital he gave up the ghost,” Adeyanju said.

Comrade Adeyanju added that: “He was with us on Thursday and he attended the stakeholders’ security meeting organized by NPA at KLT. There was no complaint of any ailment from him.”

He described the death of Comrade Sanni as unfortunate and a great loss to the labour union.

He called the departed comrade a ‘unionist to the core’ and one who contributed greatly to the success of the union.

“Sanni is very dear to me. He is a unionist to the core, a great man that carried out his assignment with diligence. He is one of the best advisers I have in the union. I will personally miss him because we have been together for more than 20 years.”

Until his death, the late Sanni was the special adviser on labour matters to the President General of the MWUN.
