He said the federal government should explain “what, where and how” the N1bn was spent.

Chukwuma noted: “Ekwueme, being a man of accountability, the federal government must give account on how the N1bn was spent.

“We are happy that the government is giving him a befitting burial, but one thing is that people should emulate the legacies he left behind.

“It is not good to say all sorts of things without emulating the legacies he left behind.”

The cleric further described Ekwueme as a ‘great politician’ who will never be forgotten in Nigeria’s history.
