Peter Obi

Former vice presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has described the late Arthur Nwankwo as a unique Igbo man and a true Nigerian who deployed everything available to him in the liberation of the people and advancement of humanity.

Reacting to news of the death of Dr Nwankwo, Mr Obi said he followed his ‘literary flowering’, both as a publisher and an author. He described the late founder of Fourth Dimension Publishers as one of those who saw “the pen as an instrument against abuse of human rights, dictatorship and absurdity.”

Obi, who said he had read some of Arthur Nwankwo’s books, especially on the Civil War, commended 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.

Concluding, the former Anambra State governor prayed to God to grant him eternal rest and to all those affected by his death, the fortitude to bear the loss.
