Zik’s Mausoleum neglect attracts UNN Alumni Association

www.odogwublog.com reports that the University of Nigeria Alumni Association, UNAA, Onitsha branch has decried the abandonment of Zik's Mausoleum project (the final resting place of Nigerian's first president and Owelle of Onitsha, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe) located at Zik's Inosi Onira Retreat, Onitsha, Anambra state.

The Alumni called on the federal government to complete without further delay, the Mausoleum project which said has constituted a national shame, having been abandoned several years after Zik was laid to rest inside the Inosi Onira Retreat.

Mausoleum was initiated after his death in 1996 and later abandoned.
President of association, Barrister Chris Ajugwe made the call in Onitsha at the 57th founders' day celebration, awards/workshop and induction of the Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Alfred Achebe (CFR) as its grand patron.

Ajugwe said it was quite regrettable that such a laudable project initiated by the federal government during Zik's burial in 1996 was yet to be completed.

On the current agitation for the restoration or actualization of Biafra, Ajugwe, a legal practitioner in Onitsha, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to summon the political will and implement the manifesto of the All Progressives Congress, APC with respect to restructuring of the country.

According to him, "a faithful implementation of the recommendation of the National Convention of 2014 will douse the tension in the polity and safeguard our country's unity".
