Vincent Ogbulafor, former national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is dead, THISDAY is reporting.
Ogbulafor is infamous for boasting that the PDP would rule Nigeria for 60 years.
THISDAY said a family source confirmed that he died on Thursday in Canada at the age of 73 from an undisclosed ailment.
Ogbulafor is from Olokoro, in Umuahia south local government area of Abia state.
He was born on May 24, 1949, and died peacefully on Thursday night, the family source reportedly said.
Ogbulafor was first PDP’s national secretary before he became national chairman after a bitter national battle between Sam Egwu and Anyim Pius Anyim.
He was forced to resign as PDP national chairman and was later charged with alleged financial recklessness while serving as a minister.
