Momah served as a grand patron of the organisation.

“We regret to announce the passing of our Grand Patron, Maj. Gen. (Dr.) Sam Momah (rtd.) – the father to our Founder, Dr. Nkem Momah. His passing occurred yesterday,” the tweet read.

“His many contributions and unflinching commitment to the growth of our Charity and service to the nation at large will forever be cherished.

“We kindly request your prayers for his peaceful repose and consolation to the family at this time. May God grant his gentle soul eternal rest by His side. Amen!”

A proponent of restructuring, the deceased launched a book entitled “Restructuring to save Nigeria from Post-Oil Disintegration” during his birthday celebration on July 6.
