The Special Adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan on Research, Documentation and Strategy, Oronto Douglas is dead.
He was born on 1966 at Okoroba, his home town in Bayelsa State, South-South of Nigeria.
According to reports, he had battled with cancer for a long time before his demise.
Douglas’ battle with cancer may be one of the reasons why he was not actively involved during Jonathan’s quest for re-election.
The 49 year-old Douglas died on Thursday, April 9, 2015 at the State House Clinic, Abuja, sources said.
