The passing of Ogbonnaya Onu, the former minister of science, technology, and innovation, has been hailed by Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s (LP) presidential candidate for 2023, as a significant loss for Nigeria.

Obi remembered Onu as a kind and detribalized Nigerian in his former days.

According to the former governor of Anambra State, the former minister bravely defended equity and good government during his lifetime and actively sought justice.

“Dr Onu was a gentleman par excellence, a patriotic and detribalised Nigerian who served the nation in different capacities. His contributions to our educational growth as a lecturer and author remain commendable.

“Dr Onu was a leader who stood for peace and progress of the nation. He pursued justice and courageously stood up for equity and good governance. He was committed to the development of the nation.

“As one who understood the critical need to move our nation from consumption to production, he pursued many initiatives to boost local production for the development of the nation.
