Abia State Governor Okezie Ikpeazu yesterday declared today (Friday) and Monday next week work free days in honour of Chief Ojo Maduekwe, whose death was announced last night.

Secretary to the State Government Eme Okoro announced this to newsmen yesterday evening, saying late Maduekwe deserved a befitting state burial considering his contributions to Igbo, the state, nation and globally and in recognition of these.

It was also gathered that the widely publicized maiden edition of Eminent Persons Lecture Series, which Dr. Ikpeazu was billed to deliver today was postponed.
