Late Rear-Admiral Ndubuisi Kanu’s 1st Year Commemoration Anniversary To Hold October



By Sampson Uhuegbu, Owerri

Family of the first Military Governor of Imo and Lagos States, Rear- Admiral Ndubuisi Kanu, has announced that the 1st year commemoration of its late father, is to hold in October, 2022.

This was contained in a Press release signed by the Head of the Ndubuisi Kanu family, Mr. Kelly Ndubuisi Kanu, dated January 12, 2022.


“I hereby do formally notify the general public that it is my family’s decision to hold a proper commemorative event sometime in middle October, 2022, to mark the passing away of our dear late patriarch, elder Statesman and Nationalist, Rear-Admiral Godwin Ndubuisi Kanu; who passed away one year ago, on the 13th of January, 2021.”

He noted, that the decision to mark the anniversary of their father’s death at a later date this year, is made in good faith which according to him, was in appreciation of the fact that he was only buried barely 3 months ago, adding that it is thus incumbent on the family to responsibly not regurgitate the shared grief from that difficult task too soon thereafter.

“The late Admiral Kanu was a kind and considerate man; and we know he would not wish upon anyone, the implied
early burden of the revisiting their anguish”, the release states.


The family therefore extends its embrace to all friends, well-wishers and associates who may expectedly hope to join them in celebrating the life of dear late Champion later in the year.

It further discloses that they would at the appropriate time announce plans for a commemorative event to mark the first-year anniversary of their amiable father, late Rear-Admiral Kanu and will directly reach out to all concerned stakeholders including the Nigerian Navy, the Ovim community, the Imo, Abia and Lagos State Governments; as well as the larger society.
