His residence in GRA, Benin City, Edo State, Nigeria, was the perfect place to ruminate over his personality, experiences, and impact. The “Ascension to glory” was an event honouring a foremost Nigerian captain of industry, Captain Idahosa Wells Okunbo (JP).
Bright chandeliers inspired a perfect mood for the Okunbo family, close-knit friends and the crème-de-la-crème of Nigeria’s political class to bare their hearts, no-holds-barred. Awe-inspiring speeches and odes could be heard as guests bid their farewells to the loving patriarch.
In a statement by Hon. Rasak Bello Osagie, a former member of the House of Representatives, he described Captain Hosa as “passionate about this country (Nigeria) with a nationalistic fervour… and his actions were powered by passion, integrity and purpose.” Most of Cappi’s friends also echoed the statement that “Cappi will be missed not just by his family but the family of all Nigerians… (because) he was a great Nigerian”.
At the close of the event, there was a lot to emulate as the life and times of Captain Idahosa Wells Okunbo (JP) struck an inspiring chord in the hearts of many, forever etched on the sands of time.
We wish him a safe landing to the great beyond. #captainhosa
