President Bola Tinubu has mourned the death of Ogbonnaya Onu, former minister of science and technology.

Onu died on Thursday at the age of 72.

In a statement issued by Ajuri Ngelale, presidential spokesperson, Tinubu described Onu’s death as a “gaping loss”.

The president said the former minister was an “accomplished scholar, first-class engineer, a man of proven integrity, defiant to indiscipline, but ever yielding to the highest standards of rectitude”.

Tinubu added that the late Onu was a principal draughtsman in the founding of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and a valiant partner in the victory of the party in the 2015 elections.

“President Tinubu affirms that Chief Onu epitomizes Nigeria in concord; in wholeness, as the late statesman believed in and defended Nigeria’s unity, advocated peace, and promoted fellowship across the Niger,” the statement reads.
