The former Chairman of National Democratic Coalition (NADECO) was aged 78.
He was born in 1943 as Ndubuisi Godwin Kanu.
He was appointed military governor of Imo State, Nigeria in March 1976 during the military regime of General Olusegun Obasanjo.
He was the first governor after the decree that established the state from part of the old East Central State.

Ndubuisi was a frontline activist, and was among the arrowheads of National Democratic Coalition (NADECO), which tackled the Abacha junta headlong.
