“The late Comrade Chima Ubani was President of UNN Students Union, 1986-87 and Secretary General, Campaign For Democracy (CD) 1993-1994. He later emerged as Secretary-General Democratic Alternative (DA) and Executive Director, Civil Liberties Organization (CLO). The CD was the arrowhead of the mass protests which forced Gen. Babangida to leave power after he annulled the June 12 1993 Presidential election won by the late MKO Abiola. As ED of CLO, he died in a car crash along Maiduguri-Potiskum Road in 2005 during a nationwide protest organised by the Labour Movement and the civil society coalition against the hike in fuel price by the Obasanjo administration that year.” By Okey Ndiribe

He left behind a wife and four children.
