AVM Osim Was The People’s General — Senator Ndoma-Egba

Former Senate Leader, Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba, SAN has described the late AVM Eko Osim as an officer and a gentleman who served Nigeria selflessly, commendably and successfully, rising to the enviable position of Air Vice Marshal in the Nigerian Air Force before retiring honorably. He referred to him as the “People’s General” owing to his selflessness and willingness to always be of assistance to his people.
The Senator made these remarks while paying a condolence visit to the family of the deceased military general in his Calabar home, where he was received by Mrs. Adebisi Eko Osim, wife of the late Air Force general. He expressed his sincere condolences and offered his prayers and support to the family in whatever way they may need him.
Responding, Mrs. Osim expressed her pleasant surprise at Senator Ndoma-Egba’s visit and thanked him for the kind gesture. She added that it was really unexpected. The Senator proceeded to sign the condolence register thereafter.
Senator Ndoma-Egba also paid a visit to Prof. Eme Osim, Emeritus Professor of Human Physiology in the University of Calabar, who is the eldest brother of late AVM Osim. During the visit, the two friends relived their experiences when they first met as young men in London in 1978. Senator Ndoma-Egba reminded Prof. Osim that he has always felt a part of the Osim’s family due to the friendship they share. He added that it is the reason why he feels a sense of personal loss at the demise of AVM Osim. He prayed for the peaceful repose of the General’s soul.
