ALL markets and private business premises in Oko, the home town of the late second republic Vice President, Dr. Alex , were yesterday shut down and commercial and social activities put on hold for the day as a mark of honour for their illustrious son who passed on in London last week. 

It was part of the mourning programme announced by the community preparatory to his burial which is yet to be fixed. When Vanguard visited the community yesterday, people of all ages were seen gathered at the Oko Civic Centre for reflections on the life of the man who single handedly brought development to the once sleepy community. Speeches, tributes and prayers were offered after which the people moved to Ekwueme’s country home where many of them signed the condolence register. President General of Oko Development Union, Chief CY Nwamuo said Ekwueme deserved the honour because he was a unique gift given to the community by God. He said: “The atmosphere depicts the mood we are in. We lost our most illustrious son, our father, our mentor.  Though we have not started the burial, but we have to show that he was our father.
