Akpabio pays tribute to former Minister Ogbonnaya Onu


Senate President Godswill Akpabio has expressed condolences to the family of the first Abia civilian governor, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu, who passed away on Thursday after a brief illness.

“Onu was a perfect gentleman,” Akpabio said in a condolence message released by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Eseme Eiboh, in Abuja on Friday.

“He will be sorely missed for his wisdom, mature poise, passion for excellence and proven integrity.

“Onu was known for taking first place in all endeavors and conducted politics without suffering throughout his life.

“On behalf of my family, the Senate and the National Assembly, I pray that he will rest in eternal peace with the Lord. May God give his family the fortitude to bear the loss.”

Onu served as Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation in the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari from 2015 to 2023.
