Ezeife, popularly referred to as Okwadike of Igboukwu, was the first democratically-elected Governor of Anambra between 1992 and 1993.

The Eastern Updates reports that the ex-governor died at the age of 85 on Thursday at the National Hospital, Abuja.

According to the governor, Ezeife would be missed sorely by all who came in contact with him, stressing that his commitment to the good of all – both the common man as well as the high and mighty – marked him out as a man who came to serve God and humanity.

Uzodimma said Ezeife’s legacies as former governor, former Permanent Secretary and former Political Adviser will remain indelible in the minds of people.

He noted that the deceased’s voice and contributions to issues of good governance in his state, Nigeria, and the society at large cannot be forgotten in a hurry.

He, therefore, prayed God Almighty to grant the deceased a peaceful repose and to his family, the grace to bear the loss.

The Eastern Updates reports that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, former Abia State governor, Sen Orji Uzor Kalu; Anambra State governor, Prof Chukwuma Soludo; former Labour Minister, Dr. Chris Ngige and others are among the people that have joined in sympathising with the family of the former governor of Anambra State,  Chief Chukwuemeka Ezeife on the passing of the statesman.
