Awesome and very impactful !
You taught me and so many others in St. Anthony's College, Ubulu-Uju. In Academics, Sports, Counselling and all other extracurricular areas you played a most affectionate and life-lasting role. I recall I had chosen my subjects after my Mock exams in 1974 to pursue a possible Law program when you intervened so sternly - " Philip, why did you choose those subjects? I want you to be a Medical Doctor! Go now and change those subjects!"
And that was it ! I have been an accomplished Medical Doctor since June, 1982 without an atom of regret !!
What a fatherly touch and counsel !!!
After a long break, we only reunited in October last year in our beloved St. Anthony's College grounds for the celebration of her Diamond jubilee. It was so emotional and nostalgic especially with the esteemed presence of great personalities like Pa P.A. Dunkwu, K.K. Chimekwene, Cyril Ngemegwai and an array of very distinguished Old Anthonians and current students and staff. We were talking regularly thereafter and I even visited your home in Asaba with Francis Atuche. A planned second visit this last July could not hold because you were on admission in the Teaching hospital in Nnewi. You painstakingly yet so affectionately managed to speak with me from your hospital bed courtesy of your son, Eboka. What a show of love! I sure will cherish this for the rest of my life ! I never knew it will be our last earthly encounter !! But it's well and good enough. We return all glory to our good and ever faithful Lord.
We pray Him to grant your great soul a most deserved everlasting rest in His bosom in the precious Name of His beloved son Jesus Christ 🙏🏽.
Our most sincere condolences to your darling wife and lovely children and the entire Onukwu family.
