The burial committee set up to plan a state burial for late Alex Ekwueme says the former vice-president will be buried on February 2.

Mustapha Boss, secretary to the government of the federation (SGF), made this known while briefing reporters in Abuja on Thursday.

Mustapha, who is the chairman of the committee, was represented by Chris Ngige, minister of labour, who is also a member of the committee.

The committee, which was inaugurated on December 15, 2017, has come up with a nine-day programme for the burial.

The programme will start from the January 19 to February 2, 2018.

The SGF described the first elected vice president of Nigeria as an accomplished architect, town planner, philanthropist and politician.

Mustapha noted that the death of Ekwueme was a painful loss to his family and the nation at large.

The SGF, however, called on all professional groups and individuals whose lives and interests were impacted on by the departed statesman to be part of the burial ceremonies to pay him their last respect.
