THE former vice chairman of the defunct Nigeria Football Association, NFA, Barrister Richard Nwabufo Obienu, who died at the age of 67 years, was buried yesterday in his home town, Nnewi amidst eulogies from the two Bishops who officiated at the commendation service at the Cathedral Church of St. Mary, Uruagu, Nnewi.
The Anglican Bishop of Nnewi, Rt. Reverend Ndubuisi Obi said the late legal practitioner and sports administrator was one of the first persons he encountered when he was enthroned the Bishop of Nnewi Diocese in 2019.
The Bishop said: “During our meetings for the synod, I was very surprised that he was always present at those meetings. Such a commitment was very rare because we was coming all the way from Enugu.
