The South East, South South Professionals of Nigeria (SESSPN), has lamented the unfortunate transitions of Admiral Ndubuisi Kalu, Prof Nick Idoko, Barristers Ziggy Azike & Oscar Onwudiwe as an unkind cut on their icons of integrity, whose professionalism and services to their fatherland fed not only our stock of inspirations, but illustrated their common commitment to our corporate nationalism and sub regional drive for efficiencies & developments.
The group, in separate condolence messages signed by the President, Mr Hannibal Uwaifo, and released by the Publicity Secretary, Collins Steve Ugwu, said that, while Admiral Ndubuisi Kalu was a master of his military career with historic gallantry at Nigeria’s democratic persistence, Prof Idoko was an invaluable knowledge asset who deployed it to lead, mentor and nurture many.
They added that Barristers Ziggy Azike and Oscar Onwudiwe were exceptional portraits of leadership talents with depths of legal reserves that were unexhausted and untimely denied a nation that deserves more of them. These losses are indeed sad with a cumulative waste of human capital that is tragic to the nation and hurts their families intensely. We deeply mourn them with their families, their states and their governors.
On the brighter side, the group extended its felicitations to the the new Ohanaeze Ndigbo President General, Prof George Obiozor, whom they noted is not just an accomplished professional, but an astute diplomat with quick expectations from the nationality he now leads for results that he cannot defer but build upon.
“We sincerely wish him well and look forward to a fresh synergy that will impact our subregions positively to induce peace and security for our robust regional growth and development,” the group said in the statement.
