    Mr. integrity passes on. This man was an enigma of honesty, integrity and humility. He always appears early to every meeting, i remember your visits to UIBC.

    What a rare gem!! Sun re o, Baba. You will be missed by many. Your impact was felt wherever you went. You were a man of integrity, always upright and a voice in your generation.
    God keep you and give your family the fortitude to bear this huge loss!!

    This is one of the very, very few men I respect in this country. First time I heard him speak I think was 2003 or ’04 in Owerri at Linus Okorie’s GOTNI gig. A true statesman, a reservoir of knowledge, an upright man. Thank you for inspiring me. May God grant you passage.
