Uche Ogah, a former minister in Nigeria, expresses sadness at Joe Irukwu’s death

Dr. Uchechukwu Ogah, a former minister of state for mines and steel development, expressed his condolences on the loss of Professor Joe Irukwu (CFR), a former president general of the largest Igbo socio-cultural organization.

Ogah praised the late Irukwu as a nationalist, legal genius, and insurance guru in a condolence statement he released to the media in Umuahia, Abia State.

As the first Managing Director of Nigeria Reinsurance Corporation and the founder of African Development Insurance Company, among many other accomplishments, he was recognized for his contributions to the public and commercial sectors of the Nigerian economy.

The loss of Professor Irukwu, according to the ex-minister, has left a hole that will be difficult to fill.

A man like Dee Ogboo, he added, “came, saw, and conquered in all facets of human endeavour; death is a necessary end for every mortal.”

Ogah, however, spoke for his family when he expressed his condolences to the Irukwu family, the residents of Amokwe Item in the Bende Local Government Area of Abia State, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), and the insurance industry on the passing of this pan-African, genuine Nigerian statesman and illustrious native of Abia State.

“I pray that God accepts the soul of this legendary figure and grants him eternal peace. My thoughts and prayers are with the Irukwus during this time of sadness, and I urge you to put your faith in God and build upon the legacies Prof. Irukwu left behind. Additionally, “Laa Nke Oma Dee Ogboo,” Dr. Ogah remarked.
