President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has extended his deepest condolences to the Onu family over the passing of Chief (Dr.) Ogbonnaya Onu, CON.

Chief Onu died Thursday, April 11, 2024, at the age of 72.

Ajuri Ngelale, Presidential Spokesman, in a statement issued Thursday noted President Tinubu “mourns a luminous star in Nigeria’s political firmament.”

Late Ogbonnaya Onu was described as the first civilian Governor of Abia State; former Minister for Science, Technology and Innovation, principal draughtsman in the founding of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and valiant partner in the victory of the ruling party in the 2015 General Elections.

The statement also noted: “Most importantly, the President celebrates the life of an accomplished scholar, first-class engineer, man of proven integrity, defiant to indiscipline, but ever yielding to the highest standards of rectitude.

“President Tinubu affirms that Chief Onu epitomises Nigeria in concord; in wholeness, as the late statesman believed in and defended Nigeria’s unity, advocated peace, and promoted fellowship across the Niger.”

The Spokesman stated Tinubu also condoled with the friends and associates of Chief Onu, Ebonyi and Abia State Governments, and all Nigerians grieving this gaping loss.

“President Tinubu prays to God Almighty to grant repose to the gentle soul of this great leader,” Ngelale added.
