The Chief of Staff to the Abia state Governor, Chief Chijioke Uzoma Nwakodo was yesterday, September 23rd, laid to rest.
The Occasion attracted prominent personalities including top ranking politicians.
Among those who attended the Burial were, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, Dep uty Governor Ude Oko Chukwu, Sen.T.A Orji, Sen. Enyinnaya Abaribe, Hon. Eziuche Ubani, Chief Eric Acho Nwakamma, Ebonyi State Chief of Staff etc.
While speaking at the occasion, the Governor had this say the late Chief of staff:
"One of my most difficult assignments as Governor has been to preside over the burial of my brother, my friend, my ally and my most trusted confidant, Chijioke Nwakodo.
"Apart from the death of my own parents, no other death has hit me the hardest and caused me the most pain. 
Chijioke was my engine room, my buffer, my strategist and my organizer. He was a huge pillar of support. We would not be where we are today but for Chijioke's contributions and masterful navigation of the project.
"He was a bulwark and an intellectual giant. 
Perhaps, what set Chijioke apart from others is that he is the kind of man that would look me straight in the eyes and tell me Mr Governor, what you plan to do is wrong. Please take another look at it.
"This is the kind of man that I have lost. 
He is not the type that kowtows to you all the time till you enter into trouble.
"He speaks the truth to you. Always. 
This is the kind of man that I have lost. 
Yes, there are men all over the place but trustworthy and reliable men are few. Chijioke's death has robbed me greatly. I feel personally diminished. Death has done its worst."
