Onu, one of the best fertile minds in Nigeria’s political landscape – Moghalu

The immediate past Managing Director of National Inland Waterways Authority (NIWA), Chief Dr. George Moghalu, has described the demise of Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu as “a huge loss” to the Igbo race, All Progressives Congress (APC) and the nation at large.

Moghalu who said he received the news of the death of his former boss noted that the deceased was a fine gentleman, dedicated politician and public servant.

According to former NIWA boss, Onu as a governor contributed immensely to the growth and development of Abia and Nigeria in general.

“As a minister of science, technology and Innovation, Dr. Onu demonstrated unwavering commitment to the ideals of nationhood.

“As a governor, he was a detribalised Nigerian and uncommon leader. When he was governor of Abia state, I served as Director General Bureau of Co-operatives and Rural Development and later as Permanent Secretary Ministry of Information and Culture despite not being from Abia state.

“As a party man, he was elected the National chairman of All Nigerian Peoples Party (ANPP), I served as the National Vice Chairman with him, his monumental contributions, uncommon loyalty to the growth of the party cannot be questioned. He was one of the founding fathers of APC.”

Moghalu urged his family, the government of Abia and Ebonyi state to take solace in the fact that Dr. Onu left a good legacy worthy of emulation for all.
