Papa had a befitting life, and today we gave him a decent burial.
I am grateful to God for his grace through this mourning period, as no time is ever the best to lose a loved one. We thank all our friends, colleagues, and associates who joined us through this time. Particularly, I want to appreciate His Excellency, President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR, who was represented by His Excellency the Vice President, Kashim Shettima GCON, for joining us in paying a deserving last respect to our Father. I thank the Deputy Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Benjamin Okezie Kalu, for his presence; my brother Governors who came around, serving and former members of the National Assembly; former Governors; and all Ndi Anambra who joined us in this moment of grief.
I do not esteem their presence and contributions lightly. We will continue to live out the legacies my father has left behind. Even as I continue to pray that we all will experience the bliss of an old, fulfilled life,.
God bless you all immensely.
