His life speaks to Sequels and Comebacks.

A younger, beautiful, educated woman became his companion when he lost his wife to the reaper. He got the blessings of sons added to daughters.

When he clocked out of the civil service in the then Anambra State, life connected him to Cadbury Nigeria and an illustrious career in public relations as Corporate Affairs Manager.

He co-founded a radio station in Lagos on his second retirement. Then served as a consultant to help others set up successful radio stations in the South East.

In his beloved Enugu, fate brought opportunity and a sequel, serving as Executive Director, then Acting DG of FRCN. It was reversing the clock more than 60 years to the beginning of his career in the self-same Radio Nigeria.
