A former Governor of Enugu State and Senator representing Enugu East Senatorial District in the Senate, Dr. Chimaroke Nnamani has mourned the death of former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Prince Vincent Ogbulafor.
Commenting on Ogbulafor’s passage, Nnamani stated that the former PDP leader was a good administrator and consummate politician who contributed to the growth of the party.
According to Senator Nnamani, “with Ogbulafor’s death, the PDP has lost a strong pillar and a committed party man. His exit has created a huge vacuum.”
The politician said that Ogbulafor died at a time when his wealth of experience in party administration was needed to resolve the seemingly intractable crisis within the party. Nnamani said: “The PDP would have profited from Ogbulafor’s wise counsel, and sagacity as the party moves closer into the 2023 general elections.
“We shall sorely miss him. He was a true party man who stood to be counted when it mattered. He was a fine gentleman who ensured the peace and unity of the PDP”.
Nnamani, who is the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Cooperation and Integration in Africa/NEPAD, however, was consoled that Ogbulafor left a track record of excellent services and an unwavering commitment to the ideals of nationhood.
He prayed that God would grant the deceased eternal rest and give his immediate family the fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss. Reports said that Ogbulafor passed on in a hospital in Canada.
