The Minister of Labour and Employment, Sen. Chris Ngige has extolled  the  former Secretary General of the Commonwealth, Chief Emeka Anyaoku, as a colossus whose profound attainments and illuminating career in global embassage, elected  an iconic change maker.

A statement by his Media Office, yesterday in Abuja, described Chief Anyaoku as an institution, whom generations of Nigerians will look back on in history as an enigma in exemplary citizenship and diplomacy.

Ngige said, “You are a great son of Nigeria who is eminent on all counts and whose name is a  foreword in the book for  excellent  citizenship. You are a change maker whose example provides a  veritable counterpoise  to the  socio-economic and political uncertainties that conspire against  Nigeria today.”

The statement added that all through his career, first in the federal civil service from where he joined the Commonwealth Secretariat, rising to become the Deputy Secretary General and then, two term Secretary General, first black man ever to  achieve such,  to becoming the Minister of Foreign Affairs in the Second Republic, Chief Anyaoku distinguished himself.
