Uncle may your powerful soul now rest in perfect perfect peace. I will always remember how in December 2019 you immediately recognised me even though it had been more than 20 years since we last saw each other. You smiled and hugged me and we spent an evening on your compound talking, sharing and reminiscing. You told me and my brother Kanayo to ask you anything we liked because you were really ready to talk! Thank you uncle for the awesome legacy you've created and for positively impacting the lives of so many people far and wide. You are loved and will be missed. Godspeed. Amen.
