NNEWI – PRESIDENT Goodluck Jonathan, his wife, Patience, several members of the federal executive council, Governors of the South East and South geo-political zones are attending the Requiem Mass preceding the internment of the former Biafran Leader, Ikemba Nnewi, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu at St. Michael De-Archangel Catholic Church, Umudim Nnewi.

In a homily, Bishop Emeritus Orlu. Diocese, Bishop Gregory Ochiagha, thanked President Jonathan and the entire nation for giving Ojukwu a befitting burial.

He described Ojukwu as a selfless leader, saying he defended his people and ensured that justice was done to all.

This is a man who had hatred for bitterness, full of compassion and had no place for partiality.

Those who had invested so much in Ojukwu’s funeral, may the death of Ojukwu brings forth a new crop of leaders that would serve selflessly and eschew corruption.

What we have in Nigeria is gross selfishness. Allow your product to be your signpost.

Said the problem of the soceity today have shown disregard for God making them to do things that are against God’ will.
