By Sunday Etuka, Abuja 

President Bola Tinubu has expressed sadness over the passing of Chief Ogbonnaya Onu, a Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Chief Onu passed away on Thursday
after a brief illness in an undisclosed hospital in Nigeria at the age of 72.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Chief Ajuri Ngelale in a statement said, the President extended his deepest condolences to the Onu family over the passing of the Ex-minister.

Onu was the first civilian governor of Abia State; former minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, a principal draughtsman in the founding of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and a valiant partner in the victory of the party in the 2015 elections.

Ngelale said, the President celebrated the life of an accomplished scholar, first-class engineer; a man of proven integrity; defiant to indiscipline, but ever yielding to the highest standards of rectitude.

Tinubu affirmed that Chief Onu epitomized 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 President also condoled with the friends and associates of Chief Onu, Ebonyi and Abia State Governments, and all Nigerians grieving the gaping loss.

President Tinubu prayed to God Almighty to grant repose to the gentle soul of the great leader.
