A short EULOGY to AHMED JODA, OFR, CON
Friday afternoon around 2pm, a distinguished patriot, departed this mortal world to the great beyond at the age of 91years. Ahmed Joda or Baba, as we all fondly called him, was a great, fair minded, energetic, detribalised, disciplined, humane, urbane and intellectually astute Nigerian. It was a privilege and a pleasure to have worked with him as chairman of the board of the Nigerian Commission when I served as EVC/CEO for 10 years.
He was very professional in chairing meetings and never allowed emotions to becloud his judgment. He was a man of great intellect and integrity which earned him the respect of the board, management and staff of the Commission.
I join all his family, friends and associates to celebrate this colossus and there’s no doubt that he will be sorely missed.
May his noble and illustrious soul Rest In Peace.
Ernest C Ndukwe,
Late Alhaji Ahmed Joda
