Ikedi Ohakim, the former governor of Imo State, expressed his condolences on the passing of Ogbonnaya Onu, the former minister of science, technology, and innovation.

He claimed that during his lifetime, the late leader practiced “politics without bitterness.”

According to Ohakim, Nigeria lost a unique jewel with a depth of expertise that is vital at this critical juncture.

The former governor stated that Nigerians owed Onu’s “memory nothing better than strive to live up to those ideas that he cherished and lived for” in a statement that he signed.

Ohakim stated: “It is with great sorrow that I have joined millions of other Nigerians in mourning my brother, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu, a profoundly patriotic Nigerian and an academic of the highest caliber.

Dr. Onu’s passage was shocking to me when I learned about it.

“Dr. Onu was a kind man who led a modest life and genuinely enjoyed politics without harboring resentment.

“Nigeria has lost a rear gem whose wisdom, intellect, and depth of national service experience are desperately needed at this most critical juncture in our shared history.”

According to information obtained by godzgeneral, Dr. Onu, the first civilian governor of Abia State, passed away on Thursday in Abuja.

The leader of the All Progressives Congress, or APC, has been suffering an illness that has not been made public.

In his final significant public appearance, Onu accused the people of Southeast Asia of being unfairly treated during the 2022 APC primary election.

In November 2015, Onu was appointed as the Minister of Science and Technology by former President Muhammadu Buhari.
