Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress

Multiple times former minister, Alabo Graham-Douglas, is dead.

It was gathered that the ex-Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture died on Monday in a hospital in Abuja.

In 1986, Graham-Douglas became Commissioner for Youths, Sports and Culture in Rivers and was appointed Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture three years later and then Minister of Aviation in General Ibrahim Babangida’s cabinet.

He was at different times minister of culture and tourism as well as labour and productivity.

In 1992, Graham-Douglas became chairman of the Southern Minorities Movement, one of the groups that eventually merged into the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

He was a candidate in the PDP primaries for the presidential nomination in 1998, losing to Olusegun Obasanjo, who went on to become president.

He was aged 82.
