The Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige has come out to mourn the death of ex-Military Administrator of Lagos and Imo states, Rear Admiral Ndubuisi Kanu.

He recently had his say via a statement by his media office in Abuja, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, Rear Admiral Ndubuisi Kanu’s death is a big blow to the Igbo nation and Nigeria, and it happened when the country needs his services the most.

He added that the loss has definitely left a vacuum in the socio-economic and political sphere in Nigeria.

His words, “He rendered selfless service as Military Administrator and distinguished himself in several top commands and exalted positions he held as a naval chief in the Nigerian Military while in active service. He was the first Chief Executive of Imo State and displayed an enviable pioneer role, laying a solid foundation for the take-off of the state and later, was redeployed as Administrator of Lagos State where he devoted great energy towards the development of Lagos and displaying an uncanny attribute of a non-materialistic person, a quality which endeared him to all, especially his bosses and Lagosians.”

“β€œHe was the major and prime mover of Ndigbo Lagos, a sister organisation to Aka Ikenga that helped to develop Igbo intellectualism and peace with their host in Lagos. Nigerians will forever remember the contributions of Ndubuisi Kanu to the struggle for the restoration of democracy in the country and enthronement of civil rights of citizens, especially the role he played during the June 12 NADECO struggle.”

“In all his struggles, the people remained paramount, even as he championed and promoted dialogue, nation-building and peaceful co-existence among the various ethnic nationalities that make up Nigeria, especially as Lagos State Administrator. Ndubuisi Kanu believed that Nigeria was large enough to accommodate and cater for everybody, irrespective of ethnic, cultural and religious differences.”

β€œNdigbo and Nigeria will sorely miss him and his interventions at critical moments in the country’s national life, adding that the vacuum created by his death would be very difficult to fill.”
