Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, had some kind words to say about Zik while commissioning his mausoleum.
“As I reflect on Zik’s life and all of what he achieved, I acknowledge that Zik does not need this house, it is we who need Zik’s name to give this house meaning and importance.
“Therefore like many who live in our hearts, the great Zik of Africa, the Owelle of Onitsha will remain evergreen”.
The mausoleum should not be abandoned but rather maintained. Zik was indeed a great man.
