Unfortunately I and my son never had the chance to meet him and my husband felt really hurt at the news. My husband told me a lot about his father. He told me how great his father was in business and that he was a very prayerful Christian man. I wish I had the chance to meet him but unfortunately I didn't. My husband was planing to go to Nigeria this year because he wanted to talk to his father about several things which he wasn't chanced to discuss.
But I don't just want to write about his success in his life, I think the Nigerian newspapers and other news websites have done that. I just want to say Good Bye to this great man whom I nor my little boy never met. I know that my little boy will learn so many virtues from the life of this great African icon.
May his soul rest in perfect peace!
