Obi, who accompanied Ekwueme’s remains from the UK on Monday, spoke during the brief ceremony at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, Abuja.

 Describing Ekwueme as a father, Obi said that “the best way to preserve his memories is through good governance, along his lofty dreams of peace and development anchored on justice and equity, which he pursued with adamantine consistency.”

 Similarly, former Health Minister, Prof. Alphonsus B. C. Nwosu said that Ekwueme, until his last breath, remained a thoroughbred professional, focused politician, committed patriot and worthy statesman. He prayed to God to grant him eternal rest.

 Former Abia State Governor, Senator Theodore Orji described Ekwueme as one politician that had the interest of the country at heart and remained focused and consistent on that.
