With total submission to the will of God, I received the news of the demise of His Eminence Eze Benard Onyenguzu Enweremadu, The Traditional Head of Ngwaland, Eze Ukwu Ndi Ngwa Ukwu and the Grand Custodian of Ngwa Culture which came to us with a huge shock.
We are bewildered because His Eminence Eze Enweremadu died at a turbulent time when Abia State, Igbo land and Nigeria needed his elderly advise most appropriately.
The death of our highly Revered Traditional Ruler has created a huge vacuum that no one can fill except by the Divine intervention of God Almighty.
The contributions of our highly respected Monarch is very conspicuous and will be greatly be missed by the Good people of Abia State, Nigeria as a country and the World globally.
The death of the septuagenarian and institution of culture and tradition is a twilight at dawn and one death too many.
He Is Not Dead
I cannot say, and I will not say
That he is dead. He is just away.
With a cheery smile, and a wave of the hand,
He has wandered into an unknown land
And left us dreaming how very fair
It needs must be, since he lingers there.
And you—oh you, who the wildest yearn
For an old-time step, and the glad return,
Think of him faring on, as dear
In the love of There as the love of Here.
Think of him still as the same. I say,
He is not dead—he is just away
We are praying that God will grant His Eminence Eze Benard Enweremadu eternal rest and the immediate family, friends , associates and well wishers the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.
