All wished they could give something to bring her back to life…plead a few more years for her on planet Earth…but alas, their tears and good wishes only helped to ease her final journey into the eternal as they waved, teary-eyed, some sobbing by her graveside in Asaba and sang the funeral hymn, “God be with u till we meet again”.

Her sons Chuks and Ogechukwu were a sorry sight, so were her siblings Ogbueshi Sammy and Hadiza were wailing, dressed in beautiful white lace with stones, Chief Mrs. Kosor Felicia Akpapunam, a friend of the poor, administrator, mother, and grandmother was finally committed to Mother Earth.

Sadly, her husband, the entertainment personage Henry Akpapunam (DJ MANNIX), was cordoned in a small room according to the dictates of tradition and comforted by family.

His siblings Ken, Collins and Sister Fyde, her hubby Captain Tony Inogbo, their two sons Kynebi and Nonso were all gloomy and tearful. Officiating Minister was Pastor Patrick Okoro who led a large contingent of members and pastorate from RCCG, Jesus Assembly, Games Village Parish Abuja, said in his sermon at the interment, Kosor Akpapunam was a beautiful soul who touched the lives of all those who came across her path. She will be missed.

The billionaire is fasting becoming one of the biggest philanthropists from the South East part of Nigeria has the milk of kindness running in his veins.

As proof of his fellow-feeling, the Senator representing Anambra South senatorial district in the National Assembly,  has  just made a wondrous donation of N500million to Anambra State, to support the fight against insecurity.

Ubah made the pledge during a visit to the state Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, at the Government House last Tuesday evening in Awka, the state capital.

The senator, however, made specifications on how the money would be spent.

Anambra State had for over a year been under the tight grip of criminals, who kidnap, kill and steal from residents until lately, when Soludo fought back.

Ubah in a statement signed by his Head of Media and Strategic Communications, Mr. Kamen Chuks Ogbonna, also explained how the funds would be used.

The senator was quoted as telling the governor that: “It takes a secure environment to sustain infrastructural development.

“I will complement your efforts with a series of interventions aimed at curbing capital flight from the zone and restore confidence in our people to return home and help in developing our economy.”

Stating how the funds would be spent, Ubah said N200million would be spent on the training of security personnel and provision of latest security communication gadgets for Anambra South vigilante groups.

He added that N300million would be for the provision of solar lights to further illuminate and strengthen the security architecture in Anambra South senatorial district.

The senator said the promise would all be implemented in the next three months.

The World Celebrates Oil and Gas Top Player, Wale Tinubu at 55

Published

By

 

Today, billionaire oil mogul, Jubril Adewale Tinubu, has more than one reason to be joyous, apart from the grace to survive the mysteries of the last night.

Rising from his ornate massive bed to witness the dawn of a new beautiful day, his heart is filled with gratitude to God for the grace to mark his 55th birthday today.

The Group Chief Executive of Oando Plc, unlike some others, usually prefers to be reflective on a day as this for very good reasons.

As a result, reliable sources disclosed that the birthday celebrations would definitely be low-key; there would not be any carnival-like celebration.

Unlike some members of his billionaires’ class he is neither given to frivolities nor any form of revelry.

Nevertheless, his family members, friends, business associates, fans and admirers are sharing in his joy and ready to pour encomiums on him.

In the past years, JAT, as he is famously called, has touched several lives whose paths have crossed his in so many positive ways.

He is as generous, collaborative, and lovable as he is innovative and brilliant. The mogul has a large heart and loves to see others succeed. He has an innate belief that behind every success story are others helping to make it happen.

Probably because he keeps the cameras away during his altruistic gestures, many don’t know that he is one of the biggest philanthropists in Nigeria at the moment.

 It is a fact that the King of Africa’s oil has eyes good investments. His convictions can move mountains and his determination can shatter ceilings. This, no doubts, has made him to have some edge over his competitors.

In the views of some observers, Tinubu’s continued relevance, nay staying power, should provoke some careful study by aspiring entrepreneurs or even established ones, especially in the Nigeria’s inclement business environment.

The highly cerebral business mogul has proven in all ramifications that the African continent does not lack talents who can hold their heads high anywhere in the world.
