A former National Chairman and first National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Vincent Ogbulafor is dead.
A family source told ThisDay that Chief Ogbulafor died on Thursday in Canada from an undisclosed ailment, aged 73.
Ogbulafor, who hails from Olokoro in Umuahia South local government of Abia State, was born on May 24, 1949, and died peacefully on Thursday night.
Ogbulafor was first PDP’s National Secretary before he later became National Chairman after a bitter national battle between Senator Sam Egwu and Senator Anyim Pius Anyim.
He was forced to resign as PDP national chairman by the powers that be, when he fell out with them.
Ogbulafor was later charged with an alleged financial recklessness while serving as a minister.
Ogbulafor became PDP national chairman on March 8, 2008.
He started his tenure on a controversial note with his comments in which he sounded magisterial that he did not care if Nigeria became a one-party state.
He was succeeded as national chairman by the former governor of Enugu State, Dr. Okwesilieze Nwodo.
