APGA HAS LOST A RARE GEM: ONOWU ANTHONY ENUKEME (TONIMAS)
The news hit me like a ballistic missile. I was dazed, shocked, and thrown into a mental fixation. How can he die like that? I queried. But no answer coming from anywhere.
As I wrote this short tribute my hand was trembling. Tonimas dead? I keep asking. It can’t be. My head swirling and my heart beating in quick succession.
A good man has joined the Saints. Since I met him it has been one good act or another recorded for him. He single-handed built a church in his hometown, Neni; celebrated annual yam festival for his people, and gave generously to numerous church and philanthropic causes.
He loved APGA with passion. He attended our last National Convention in Awka where he was elected a BOT member.
Oh, Lord, my God! How do we bear this burden of the loss of one of our pillars?
I can’t continue. I am losing balance. Let me wait till the reality sinks before I can do a more befitting tribute.
One of the most extravagant oil magnates in the nation, Chief Anthony Enukeme, is dead.
He was 75.
The Chief Executive of Tonimas Oil and gas gathering, passed on Monday night, after a short disease.
A family source, who talked with The Nation, said he passed on due to the movement boycott occasioned by the coronavirus pandemic.
He said the expired, who timed 75, last January used to travel abroad consistently on routine wellbeing checks yet couldn’t go as a result of the pandemic.
A dedicated Roman Catholic, he was to commend his 50th wedding commemoration on May 2 , which was racked in light of the worldwide pandemic.
