I didn't really have many moments with you Sir but I will always remember your kind eyes and firm but reassuring voice. RIP

You certainly made an impression on me daddy as I have quite a few fond memories of you: your smile, your unfailing memory and attention to detail, your insider stories on the Nigerian civil war, your hatred for corruption and your thoughts on the way forward for Nigeria, the moment you entrusted Akaji to me in marriage, your passion for soccer and 'equal' support for ManU, Chelsea and Man City (not sure you would have loved this world cup……Brazil didn’t make the final), your interest in listening to the news (on your small radio or the TV), your firm grip as we stand holding hands to pray at the end of visiting with you (still can’t remember whether to stand to your left or right)…..your voice while singing before we prayed, your white suit, your white traditional and your white shoes, the game (Sararamba) you taught my kids, the many grand words you always used in saying ‘thank you’. You are everything I wanted in a father-in-law, I will certainly miss you. Adieu daddy !!!

Though I never met you. All I ever heard about you were good things. How much of a disciplinarian you were. How much you showed love to your kids. The beautiful house you left in Surulere after the demise of your spouse as you could not bear to live that memory. How much sacrifices you made for the kids. how you instilled the penance of hardwork on everyone you came in contact with. Truly, you will forever be remembered. My condolences to the Family Chinwe. God keep the rest of you

My condolences to you and yours, Nwach and may God’s grace attend through the funeral arrangements and beyond. I believe your dad has lived long and well - so should we all who yet live.
