•Late Dr. Alex Ekwueme

Seasoned politician and entrepreneur, Barr Emma Ogboko, has expressed sadness over the death of former Vice President, Dr. Alex Ekwueme. He joined other Igbo leaders, Nigerians and Africans at large in mourning the demise of the foremost Igbo leader whom he said was the face of Ndigbo in Nigeria’s politics and epitome of unity in a diverse Nigeria.

Ogboko, a chieftain of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), said that the death of Dr. Ekwueme is an irreparable loss to Ndigbo, saying that he wished the former Vice President lived longer because Ndigbo and Nigerians needed his wisdom now more than ever before.

He said that the death of Ekwueme was one too many, stressing that the vacuum he left behind would be very difficult to fill at this material time.

He added that Ndigbo needed his wisdom to navigate the raging debate on restructuring and the agitation against marginalisation in the Southeast.

He called on the governments of the Southeast and the Federal Government to take actions to ensure that the values and legacies Dr Ekwueme left behind live.
