Northern Governors Pay Tribute to Late Ogbonnaya Onu

The Northern States Governors’ Forum has expressed deep sorrow over the demise of the first civilian governor of Abia and former minister of science, technology, and innovation, Ogbonnaya Onu.

Gombe State Governor Inuwa Yahaya said in a condolence message on behalf of the 19 northern governors that Mr Onu made remarkable contributions to Nigeria’s political landscape.

He said the former minister left behind a legacy of humility, hard work, and exceptional service to the nation.

This is contained in a statement by Ismaila Uba-Misilli, Gombe Government House spokesperson, on Friday.

The NSGF chairman recalled that Mr Onu’s tenure as governor of Abia and his subsequent role as minister of science and technology were characterised by dedication and a relentless pursuit of excellence.

He also emphasised Mr Onu’s contributions to APC’s journey towards national prominence, highlighting his commitment and selfless efforts in laying the foundation for a stronger, united, and progressive Nigeria through the APC platform.

“Ogbonnaya Onu’s demise marks the end of an era, but his legacy will continue to inspire and guide future generations in their service to Nigeria.

“The Northern States Governors’ Forum joins the nation in mourning the loss of a distinguished statesman and offers prayers for the repose of his soul,” Mr Yahaya said.

Mr Yahaya extended his heartfelt condolences to Mr Onu’s family, the governments of Ebonyi and Abia, and the entire South-East region.

He prayed to God to grant the deceased eternal rest and give his family the fortitude to bear this profound loss.
