The statement read in part”Ogbulafor would have been of a remedy to unravel the crisis currently facing the PDP, but if he was in the position of Iyorchia Ayu is facing currently as National Chairman, he would have repeat history by doing the needful, he would have resigned honourably and restore sanity to the party, by sacrificing his benefits and privileges for the unity of the PDP, as a royal Prince, his words were his bounds, he keeps his promises while he lived”.
“Ndigbo will mourn Prince Vincent Eze Ogbulafor, and he will be remembered for always putting the people first before himself,” he resigned from his position as National Chairman of PDP in 2010 when Jonathan becomes the President, and to balance the political equation since former President Jonathan is from the South with him, and to allow a northerner to replace him, he voluntarily relinquishes his position as PDP National Chair for the north, he was a good leader with a human face”.
While asking the almighty God to forgive him his shortcomings and grant his family and friends the fortitude to bear this loss, stating that Ndigbo has lost a Prince from the East with humble beginnings and a friendly disposition”.
