Hon. Comr. Cokey Lordson Nwachukwu is happily married to his Beautiful Onyinye and Sweet Wahala as he fondly calls her, Mrs. Ruth Chinyerem Cokey.

Early Life

 As the Chairman of the Joint Campus Committee, it was under his leadership that students were given waivers, which enabled them to write exams even when they haven’t paid their school fees, as against the backdrop of “No school fee, No Exams” policy at the Michael Okpara University, Umudike. With his sagacious leadership, he was also able to negotiate a price slash of developmental fees for students at the Abia State Polytechnic.

He was also instrumental to the student struggle during the ASUU strike in 2018, where he led a team of students from Abia State to join the Leadership of NANS Zone B, to block the second Niger Bridge in order to make the government succumb to their demands of re-opening universities.
