“He was my brother and a very courageous partner in the struggle for democracy and enthronement of true federalism in Nigeria.

In everything he did, from his work as former administrator of Lagos State to the sacrifices he made to help NADECO during the struggle for the actualization of June 12, Real Admiral Kanu was highly principled. He provided democratic vision and meaningful ideas to advance that historic struggle.

“He was a patriot and a progressive. A rare breed in his consistent and unwavering commitment to social justice, democracy, and workable federalism in Nigeria.

“With his immense experience and gentle mien, the admiral offered intelligence and meaningful advice which always proved helpful in solving problems at critical times.
