Joda unites Nigeria after civil war-OBJ

By Sam Peter

Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo has described the late former Permanent Secretary, Alh. Ahmed Joda as someone who saved the unity of Nigeria shortly after the country's upheaval in I966 alongside other Super Permanent Secretaries.
In a statement by his special 
assistant on media Kehinde Akinyemi, Chief Obasanjo while reacting to the death described late Joda as a true and great Nigerian, committed to unity, development and progress of the country.

. He noted that they both met when he was a Second Lieutuant in the Nigeria Army and Joda was a Deputy Chief Information Officer in the Federal Civil service. 

 Obasanjo, who rolled out the drums to celebrate Joda's 90th birthday last year in Abeokuta, recalled that the effort of him and his other Super Permanent Secretaries as they were fondly called in the then civil service saved Nigeria in 1966. He prayed for the repose of the soul of the departed .
