Labour Party Presidential candidate, Peter Obi has mourned the death of his political mentor, Chief Sylvester Nwobu Alor.
Former Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi has taken to social media to pay his tribute to political juggernaut, Nwobu Alor.
TopNaija understands that the deceased was very instrumental to the LP Presidential aspirant during the reign of Peter Obi as governor of Anambra State.
A bereaved Peter Obi took to his social media page to pay tribute and his last respect to the Anambra elder statesman.
Peter Obi said: “I am personally pained by the loss of my very Dear Uncle, Chief Sylvester Nwobu Alor. Even though he was well advanced in age, his passing is still a huge loss of a respected, celebrated, and explored life. “Chief Nwobu Alor was not just an uncle, he was a huge mentor and father figure in my political life. I highly valued his wise counsel. “His grasp of the inner workings of Nigerian politics was profound. In very self-effacing ways, he cherished his role as an adviser who always stayed in the background. He will be sorely missed.“
During the second republic, Chief Nwobu-Alor was a lawmaker and also the former Director-General of the Peter Obi Campaign Organisation.
The deceased was said to have been the major coordinator of motor parks and markets across Anambra state.
