The great nationalist and elder stateman, Chief Anthony Enahoro is dead. He died early this morning in Benin according to reports. He is aged 87.
Enahoro had an abiding commitment to the progress of Nigeria. He spent the most part of his vibrant political life fighting for the entrenchment of freedom, democracy, and egalitarianism in Nigeria. Even in old age, he had Nigeria always on his mind. He spent the later part of his life offering, from his rich hindsight and foresight, rare insights on how to pull Nigeria back from a disappointing precipice he consistently warned that the country was headed for.
