CONDOLENCE MESSAGE

It is with shock that I received the news conveying the death of your loving father whose sad event took place on 7th August, 2017.

On behalf of my family and the staff under the office of the (CMAC) FETHA, I wish to express our heartfelt condolences to you and your family.

The news of your father's death was shocking, but what can we do rather than to pray to Almighty God, to give you and members of your family the grace and fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.

Your consolation will be that he was an achiever, a caring father, a seasoned public servant, who has reached his peak in a very short period before bowing to the cold hands of death.

Our hope is that we will meet to part no more on the resurrection day.

Adieu Prof.

CONDOLENCE MESSAGE

It is with rude shock and profound grief that I on behalf of the families of Pa Patrick Oko Elem and Dr. Augustine Oko writw to commiserate with the entire family of Ezeogo Michael Akpu Chukwu, Omakaejali Ehugbo on the passing away on to eternity of your beloved Husband, Father and Brother Prof. Austin Chukwu which sad event occured on the 7th of August, 2017.

Prof. Austin Chukwu was not just A Prince, An Illustriius Son, A Guru in Academics but indeed A Professor in a Very Special Class with An Uncommon Confident Boldness.

As a forthright personality, Prof. exhibited transparent honesty, enviable nobility, zero tolerance to injustice in all its forms and stood firm on his convictions.

He was outstandingly humorous, very lifely and a man of captivating oratoral prowess.

Prof was a reservoir of historical facts and events. He was also a good mixer,  a man who paid attention to details.

Death came unnoticed and suddenly snatched him away at a time he was mostly needed. Of course death is a divine appointment and Does Not Take No for An Answer. The wise lives in a state of preparedness for this inevitable appointment and Christ is the Answer.

As a good Christian father and lovely husband, Prof was loving, caring, highly protective and very understanding.

It is our prayer that the Lord, God of comfort will see the entire family through this period of grief and grant you the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.

Please be consoled by the legacies of virtue Prof left behind.

AUSTIN CHUKWU, THE MOTIVATOR

It was in the first harmattan of 2006. I had gone to the Ebonyi State University to see Prof. Adiele E. Afigbo if he can oblige me with an article he wrote in 1970 since I could not find it in any library. As I waited in the lobby, two men walked slowly across where I was, discussing. I was able to pick some of their conversations.

 

'What qualifications do you have?' the older of the two had asked, apparently the younger one was searching for job placement.

'I have second class upper,' he said proudly.

'While I'll help,' he'd advised him, 'you should get at least a masters degree to have some measure of security.'

I'll come back to this story.

 

By 2007 I had published my book and given out several copies ahead of the public presentation. I had also approached a professor who graciously agreed to review the book. I was advised to involve the government and while I waited to get the governor's approval and date, the professor was given an official assignment that would take him out of the state. By now I had gotten the governor's approval. Left without a reviewer, I started searching for any person to review the book because time was running out based on the approved date. A friend came to my aid and took me to Prof. Austin Chukwu. I was skeptical if he'd oblige me considering lack of time. My fear was genuine because I had not met him before, I do not know him and...
