His remains will be buried today at Oko, his home town after a church service at St. John’s Anglican Church in the town. Meanwhile, former President Shehu Shagari has described Alex Ekwueme as a vice- president he trusted while their service to the nation lasted. Shagari also said because of the deep trust he had for Ekweme, it was difficult for mischief makers to drive a wedge between them. The Second Republic president said this in a tribute yesterday. Also in Abuja and Enugu where similar commendation services were held earlier, eulogies flowed freely from speakers who described the late elder statesman as the beacon of modern Nigeria and the architect of Nigeria’s six geopolitical structure. Over 200 priests, including Bishops from most Christian denominations, as well as most of the traditional rulers in Anambra State and Ekwueme family members attended the ceremony at the famous Ekwueme square named after the late Vice President.
