As Chief Dr. Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu marks his 69th Birthday today, one thing he could have wished for was the presence of his loving wife, best friend and confidante, Lady Eudora who was snatched away by the cold hands of death exactly one week ago.(8/28/11)
The stage was set for a Grand birthday party for the King-maker on this day, September 4th, 2011. Sadly in its place, a Prayer session / Service of Songs is being held in honour of the Late Lady Eudora Iwuayanwu at their London residence.
O death! where is thy sting?
O grave! where is thy victory?
Be as it may, we are grateful to the Almighty for adding another year to the life of Chief. Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu. It has been 69 great years of hardwork and selfless service to humanity.
In the words of William Shakespere ” ……Some are born great. Some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.”
Both Politically and Economically, the History of our nation, Nigeria will be incomplete without the mention of Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, MFR. A King in all ramifications yet, drenched in humility.
From the field of Sports to the worlds of Business, Philantropy and Politics to name a few, the accolades are numerous to mention.
It is worthy to note that, our Elder statesman who has enjoyed cordial relationships with many Presidents till date is known to have declined every Political appointment offered to him. He always preferred to nominate others. We respectfully, duff our Hat to a selfless man indeed.
Knight of St.Christopher, Sir Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu leaves his golden footprints for the young generation to emulate.
As he mourns the untimely departure of his beloved wife, Lady Eudora , we ask for God to comfort and strengthen him.
Happy Birthday Sir.
