Senate Urges FG To Grant Chinua Achebe State Funeral

The senate has urged the Federal Government to grant a state funeral in honour of the late sage, Chinua Achebe in order to promote and showcase excellence and his positive contributions to Nigeria and the world. 

The Upper Chamber also urged the government to name a national monument and a major Highway or Street after Chinua Achebe.

This followed the adoption of a motion in honour of the late sage sponsored by Senator Chris Ngige and 107 senators on the death of Achebe. 

Leading debate on the motion, Senator Ngige described Achebe as a world figure and a personality who brought fame and prestige to Nigeria through his literary works.
