Nigeria’s former Co-ordinating Minister of the Economy, Prof. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has lost her father Obi (Prof) Chukwuka Okonjo, the Obi of Ogwashi-Uku in Aniocha South L.G.A of Delta State.

The professor of mathematics died at the age of 91 in the United States of America (USA) 12 years after ascending the throne of his ancestors.

A new monarch, Ifechukwude Chukwuka Okonjo who is a financial management expert and CEO of Chevy Chase Consulting has already been crowned following the completion of traditional rites.

Meanwhile President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with the family of the deceased.

According to a statement by the President’s media aide, Mr Femi Adesina, in Abuja on Saturday, the President commiserated with the government and people of Delta State over the death of the traditional leader.

He also condoled with the academia, the Umu Obi Obahai Royal Family of Ogwashi-Uku, friends and professional colleagues of the late scholar.

Buhari noted that the deceased dedicated his life to teaching, research and service of humanity.

He also affirmed that the traditional ruler contributed immensely to Nigeria’s development with his uncommon wisdom of pursuing knowledge, encouraging his wife and children to follow the same path and sponsoring other people’s children to acquire quality education.

I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith.
