President Muhammadu Buhari has extended heartfelt condolences to the Nwodo family on the passing of their patriarch, Dr Joe Nwodo.

President Buhari prayed for the repose of the soul of the deceased and comfort for family members including former Governor Okwesilieze Nwodo of Enugu State, the immediate past President of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo and their sister, Valerie Janet Azinge; and all who admired his disposition to cooperation, reconciliation and justice, as integral parts of nation building.
