A former Military Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Air Commodore Idongesit Nkanga (rtd.) is dead. Nkanga was also the Chairman of Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF). Sources said he died in an undisclosed hospital in Uyo on Christmas Eve.
Speculations say he may have fallen to the dreaded COVID-19.
The late Nkanga was Akwa Ibom governor from September 1990 to January during Ibrahim Babangida’s military regime.
Nkanga will be remembered for his campaign for the restructuring of Nigeria, development of the country’s Niger Delta region and Resource Control.
