Nnamdi Azikiwe's Son, Chukwuma Buried As FG, Local Chiefs Absent by IamAtribalist: 5:17am On Sep 14, 2015
THE Federal government and indigenes of Onitsha, Anambra State, on Saturday shunned the burial ceremony of late Chief Chukwuma Bamidele Azikiwe, the first son of the first president of Nigeria, late Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe, the Owelle of Onitsha.

The Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Alfred Achebe and his cabinet chiefs were also conspicuously absent at the burial, an action which did not go down well with the mourners and sympathisers during the burial.

The late Chukwuma was a high chief in Onitsha.
In his sermon, the Anglican Archbishop of Awka, Most Rev Maxwell Anikwenwa (emeritus), regretted that people politicised the death of Chukwuma, which could have caused the shunning of the burial by those who were supposed to be present.
He described Chukwuma as a selfless and generous person that was not interested in acquiring earthly wealth but pursued service to God and man.

Speaking on the occasion, former national chairman of the All Progressive Grand Aliance (APGA), Chief Victor Umeh, said “the most important thing is for one to achieve heaven,” adding that it was not the number of mourners that mattered but the heart with which the people received the demise of the person in question. He urged the brother of late Chukwuma, Ambassodor Emeka A. Azikiwe and the entire family to take heart, adding that God in His infinite mercies would grant them the fortitude with which to bear the loss.

In his tribute, the Igbo spiritual Leader and Ogirisi Igbo, Chief Rommy Ezeonwuka, urged the family to take heart, while noting that the late Chukwuma fought the Igbo cause.

“He was not interested in acquiring wealth even if he had the opportunity as the son of the first president of this great country,” Ezeonwuka stated.
Also speaking, Governor Willie Obiano, who was represented by the Commissioner for Special duty, Hon Uzoamaka Onuegbu, said that the state government had become an integral part of Zik’s family.

“You can see how we kept the compound tidy for the burial and we hope the Federal Government will complete its work on the library project that is currently going on here,” he said.

Speaking on the occasion, the Ambassador Azikiwe described his late brother as a selfless and generous person that was not interested in acquisition of wealth.

They should have invited president Nnamdi kanu.
Well the only thing that matters is your final resting place. Even if Obama like let him attend the burial, the life and times is all that matters to God now.
Rip DR.

The FG was afraid of being nipped by biafra and the clever Chiefs were afraid of being caught as accomplices in the biafra complicity. Cunning man died, cunning man burried him!!!!

I know how yorubas will make the Queen come for this Burial or send a representative. The yorubas will make Cnn, Aljazeera and BBC cover the burial and they will make it almost appear like a national holiday. My guys across what happened na? He may not have been Zik himself but when you study the autobiography of the great Zik, you will see clearly the sacrifices of Bamidele as a baby boy then being left at home by his father who was busy negotiating Nigeria's independence. Check out how the name Bamidele came about. It's like sayin abiola deserves all the praises for his struggle and leaving his family out. RIP Mr Bamidele.

I love the way Anambrans shuned Buhari and buried they son chukwuma. It is a mockery for a government that does't see you as part of its term to be more interest only in buring your son.

They aren't united like how all the governors in the south-west didn't attend Ooni of Ife's Burial.

Imagine the Ooni of Ife, a first class Royal king was shunned by dignitaries in the south-west. I guess that is Unity.
