Former Minister of Education, and ex-presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria in the 2019 election, Oby Ezekwesili, has lost her mother, Mrs. Cecilia Nwayiaka Ujubuonu.

She was said to have died of cancer-related sickness in Abuja on Sunday night.

A terse statement issued on Monday by Ezekwesili’s spokesperson, Ozioma Ubabukoh, said Ujubuonu died at the age of 78.

Until her death, she was a member of the Redeemed Christian Church of God.

A native of Ndodolu Village, Umunuko, Ukpor, in Nnewi South Local Government Area of Anambra State, she was widowed after the death of her husband, Benjamin Ujubuonu, in 1988.

Born on April 18, 1942, Ujubuonu, a retired businesswoman, devoted her life to her children, grandchildren, the church, and service to humanity.
