Arthur Nwankwo was a unique Nigerian - Obi

By Valentine Amanze
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Vice Presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, has described Dr. Arthur Nwankwo as a unique Igbo man and a true Nigerian who deployed everything available to him to the liberation of the people and advancement of humanity.
Obi, the former governor of Anambra State, was reacting to the death of Nwankwo on Saturday.

The ex-governor, who said that he had followed Nwankwo’s “literary flowering”, both as a publisher and an author, described him as one of those who saw “the pen as an instrument against abuse of human rights, dictatorship and absurdity.”
Obi also said that he had read some of his books, especially on the Cilvil War, while commending his unique ability to explain events and ideas in simple and exciting terms.
“One would also dictate patriotic zeal in every line of his writing, especially while condemning bad governance and offering solutions on how to get the business of managing Nigeria right by tackling corruption and related vices”, Obi said.
Besides, he prayed to God to grant him eternal rest in his kingdom and to all those affected by his death, the fortitude to bear the loss.
