Security expert; Dr. Ona Ekhomu has advised Nigerian politicians to imbibe the traits of servant leadership and selflessness that defined the life of Rear Admiral Ndubisi Kanu who passed on early this week.

 Kanu was a former Military Administrator of Imo State from 1976 to 1977 and Lagos State from 1977 to 1978.

In a press statement on Thursday, Ekhomu described Admiral Kanu as a committed and selfless leader who loved Nigeria without mental reservation and worked to enthrone democratic governance.

The security chieftain who is the National President of the Association of Industrial Security and Safety Operators of Nigeria (AISSON) described the passage of Kanu as a “great loss to the nation”, adding that Nigeria lost a pillar of democracy.

He further described Admiral Kanu as a rare breed of a productive and cerebral leader. He said: “His Excellency often engaged in critical thinking and was an astute problem solver. He led by example saying, do as I do, not as I say”.

According to him,  Kanu’s love for Nigeria and Ndigbo is “Ineffable love,” stressing that  Kanu hated injustice and believed in the greatness of Nigeria.

Ekhomu noted that  Kanu was very passionate about security and safety of Nigerians. “He often shared deep insights with me on the current security challenges facing the nation”, he added.

He pointed out that Kanu was one of the best-trained officers of the Nigerian Navy, saying that the former governor believed and fought for Nigerian unity. His love for Nigeria informed his pre-eminent role in the National Democratic Coalition (NADECO) which opposed military rule and hastened the return to democratic rule in the country.
