The remains of former Vice President, Dr Alex Ekwueme, arrived at the presidential wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja on Monday.

Two months after he passed away in a London hospital, Ekwueme began his journey home to his final resting place with a commendation service held in his honour at The Cathedral Church of Christ, Marina, Lagos on Friday, followed by an Evening of Tributes and Music on the same day at the Muson Centre, Onikan, Lagos.

The elder statesman died on November 19, 2017 at the age of 85.

Following Ekwueme’s death, the Federal Government had in December set up a Burial Committee to set plans in motion towards giving the late elder statesman a befitting burial.
