The former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, has said that he was saddened by the death of Nigeria’s ex-Finance Minister, Chu SP Okongwu, who was announced dead on January 12, 2021.
Obi said that Okongwu was key to the general opening up and liberalisation of the nation’s economy under General Ibrahim Babangida administration, which saw a rise in private sector participation in the economy.
Sympathising with the Okongwu family and all who mourn his death, Obi urged them to put their hope in God, who alone gives and takes life.
He prayed God to grant the late Okongwu eternal rest and give his family the fortitude to bear his irreplaceable loss.
