Nnewi, Aug. 9, 2020 (MOI) A member, representing Nnewi North in the Anambra State House of Assembly, Mr Nonso Okafor has condoled with the family of late Maj.-Gen Sam Momah of Umudim, Nnewi on the demise of the former Science and Technology Minister.

Mr Okafor described the death of Gen. Momah as a huge loss, not only to Nnewi constituency, but also to the different political and professional establishments to which the late General served in Nigeria.

``He served as Chief Administrator and Adjutant General of the Nigerian Army, Director of National War College and Minister of Science and Technology.

``He also served as Member of the Governing Council of the University of Jos, Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, and Akanu Ibiam Federal Polytechnic, Uwana.

``Maj.- Gen. Momah died at the time when his counsel, experience and contribution were more needed in the development of Nnewi, Anambra and Nigeria,’’ the lawmaker said.

``As a man who dedicated his time to the service of humanity, his death leaves a great vacuum in our hearts and minds, which will be difficult to fill, as he was a quintessential man.”

Mr Okafor prayed to God to grant his family and Ndi Nnewi the courage and fortitude to bear the loss. (MOI)
