Ojukwu’s Funeral

THE FUNERAL CEREMONY FOR “OUR HERO”, IKEMBA NNEWI DIM CHUKWUEMEKA ODUMEGWU OJUKWU

Tributes have rolled to celebrate Ojukwu since his death on November 26, 2011 in a London Hospital; from the cosmopolitan cities of Washington, Moscow, Buenos Aires, Wellington, Pretoria, London, to the hilly capital city of Abuja, and indeed throughout the world, the human race has never ceased to write tributes and eulogies for Dim Ojukwu. One striking attribute that resonates in all these tributes remain the patriotism and love Ojukwu had for his people.

For Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, fear remains nothing. He was the man whose greatest achievement in life was conquering of his own fears. Throughout his life and times, he strenuously and diplomatically stood for an egalitarian Nigeria where all men will live in peace, justice and fairness. Unfortunately, that did not happen in his lifetime. MAY HIS GENTLE SOUL REST IN PEACE!

Biafra will ever live not as a dream, but as the crystalization of the cherished hopes of a people, who see to the establishment of this territory, a last hope for peace and security. – Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, 15th January, 1970.
