The Anambra State Governor, Prof Chukwuma Soludo, has expressed sadness over the passing of the former Secretary-General of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Prof. Ben Nwabueze.
Nwabueze reportedly died on Sunday 29, October 2023, at the ripe age of 94.
Governor Soludo, in a press release signed on his behalf by his press secretary, Christian Aburime, stated, “The government and the good people of Anambra State, join in mourning the loss of this great son and patriot, whose phenomenal contributions to our state and country will never be forgotten.
“Prof. Nwabueze’s influence extended far beyond his home state. He lived all his life inspiring generations of legal minds and citizens alike to strive for a more just and equitable society.”
Governor Soludo further said his wisdom and tireless efforts in advocating for democratic ideals had also guided Nigeria through some of its most pivotal moments.
“As a towering figure in the field of constitutional law and an elder statesman of unparalleled integrity in Nigeria, the legacy of Prof. Nwabueze will forever be etched in the annals of our nation’s history.
“His unyielding commitment to the cause of constitutionalism, justice and equity has left an indelible impact on Nigeria,” Soludo said.
