Senator Nwaogu buries husband amidst lamentations, tributes
Eulogizing the late Nwaogu who died at 63 years, Abia State governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, described him as a patriot who contributed to the growth and democratic development of the country, which he added, was worthy of emulation by the living.
The deceased he said “while alive, played his role in the best way he could. His death was beyond human remedy and is a fulfillment of God’s decree that every mortal shall one day die. It was inevitable and beyond human remedy. All mortals therefore ought to make peace with God while alive in order to be counted among the living when the trumpet would sound.”
Describing the late Nwaogu who he said he knew through his wife Senator Nwaogu, a chieftain of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, said he would ever be remembered for having lived a life worthy of emulation.
According to former Abia State governor, Chief Orji Uzor Kalu, the late Nwaogu was a rare gem who touched many lives positively in many ways. “He did not live for himself and family alone, he devoted his life to the service of God and humanity.”
In his sermon at the funeral service held at Mbutuoma Anglican Church, the Bishop of Aba Ngwa North Diocese, Dr. Nathan Kanu, urged all and sundry to shun sin, avarice among other vices stressing that as human beings, they are like pilgrims and strangers on earthly journey.
He consoled the bereaved family not to mourn like people without hope.
Dignitaries from all walks of life who attended the ceremony include: Senator Ike Ekweremadu, Theodore Orji, Enyi Abaribe, Rep Sam Onuigbo representing Ikwuano/ Umuahia, Speaker of the Abia State House of Assembly Hon Martins Azubuike.
