Barrister Joe Nwodo, a brother to the immediate past President General of the Apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Chief Nnia Nwodo is dead.
Nwodo who was a governorship aspirant in the 1991 governorship election on the platform of the defunct National Republican Convention in Enugu State died after suffering an undisclosed ailment at a London hospital.
His disqualification paved way for his younger brother, Okwesilieze Nwodo, to run under the party who was subsequently elected Governor of Enugu State in 1993.
He was also a presidential aspirant who ran with Malam Adamu Ciroma at the NRC convention in Port Harcourt.
His other brother Nnia Nwodo was former Minister of Aviation under President Shehu Shagari, and Minister of Information under President Abdusalami Abubakar.
