Iconic Novelist, Chinua Achebe Will Buried May 23


According to Punch reports,

The meeting held at Enugu State Government House, had all the governors in attendance, except Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, who represented by his deputy, Mr. Eze Madumere.

Okorocha is in London, where he is receiving treatment following an auto crash on Friday.

The PUNCH had two weeks ago reported that the burial of the renowned author would be held on May 23.

Meanwhile, Obi, who spoke on the burial arrangements, also noted that plans were underway for the construction of the Enugu International Airport.

He said, “We met today and took decisions on security as well as the Enugu International Airport.”

Obi said President Goodluck Jonathan would soon be in Enugu to turn the sod for the airport construction projects.
