A former United States ambassador to Nigeria, Walter Carrington, is dead.

A family statement signed by his Nigerian wife, Arese Carrington, said Mr Carrington died on Tuesday. She did not state the cause of his death.

“It is with a heavy and broken heart but with gratitude to God for his life of selfless humanity that I announce the passing of my beloved husband Walter Carrington, former U.S. Ambassador to Nigeria and Senegal.

“He passed away peacefully, surrounded by loved ones at the age of 90 years old on Tuesday, August 11th, 2020. Further announcements will be made shortly,” the statement read.

Mrs Carrington described the late diplomat as a loving husband, father, grandfather, cousin, uncle, friend and in-law.

“Ralph Waldo Emerson said…It is not the length of life but the depth of life.

“Walter was fortunate, his life had both length and depth,” she said in the statement.

About the late diplomat

Mr Carrington, who celebrated his 90th birthday a fortnight ago, served as the United States Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to Senegal and Nigeria.

He served as the U.S. Ambassador to Senegal from 1980 to 1981 and was later appointed by former U.S. President, Bill Clinton, in 1993 as the ambassador to Nigeria, where he remained until 1997.

His Exploits During NADECO Days

Mr. Carrington was a pillar of support during the hey days of National Democratic Coalition, NADECO, to actualise the mandate given to late Mashood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola.

He gave his support to the CSOs that he was branded NADECO Ambassador by the late head of state, Gen. Sani Abacha.

Mr Carrington will be sorely missed by the human rights community and lovers of democratic ideals all over the world.

In recognition of his support, the street that housed US foreign mission in Lagos formerly Eleke Crescent, was renamed after him as Walter Carrington Crescent.

May his soul rest in peace.

    I run a vape shop submission site and we have had a posting from a vape shop in the United States that likewise advertises CBD products. A Month later on, PayPal has written to use to say that our account has been limited and have requested us to take out PayPal as a payment method from our vape store website directory. We do not offer CBD products such as CBD oil. We merely provide online marketing professional services to CBD companies. I have had a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Major Health and wellness Merchant and if you take a close peek, you will witness that they offer for sale a relatively extensive stable of CBD items, particularly CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a payment solution. It seems that PayPal is applying twos sets of rules to different firms. Because of this restriction, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related website. This has restricted my payment options and currently, I am intensely dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have checked with a lawyer from a Magic Circle law office in The city of london and they stated that what PayPal is undertaking is definitely against the law and discriminatory as it should be applying an uniform benchmark to all companies. I am yet to talk with a different lawyer from a US law practice in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. For the time being, I would be highly appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could offer me with alternative payment processors/merchants that work with CBD firms.
