Nigerian Minister Amaechi Pays Tribute To Late Elder Brother...

Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi buried his elder brother, Charles Amaechi,on Saturday September 12,2020 in his country home Ubima, Rivers State.

The minister who spoke during a church service organised for the deceased at the St. Theresa Catholic Church, Ubima said the death left a huge family responsibility on him as it would be difficult to combine both family and official responsibilities.

Amaechi said: “He has left us with a huge responsibility that I never imagined would be so soon to confront and a challenge that I lack the capacity to discharge.Chikamkpa, Lemchi, Obinna, Judith and I will find it difficult to come to terms with his death. We can only pray that Dede rests in the bosom of the Lord.

”Dede, as he was widely known, was generous to a fault. Dede was a name given to him by me in reverence to his ubiquitous care and fatherly role in our lives.He was everything to everybody and was full of life, he related with both the young and the old and got all his children educated.

”He protected all of us from the vagaries of the Nigerian society.

“He contributed to the payment of my school fees and ensured that we were not fatherless at the death of our father as he assumed the responsibilities of the family.He made my younger siblings complete their education and got them engaged in their different spheres of responsibilities,” Amaechi said.

    Rest well Dede.

  2. Rest in peace Dede. I attended this funeral at Ubima. I'm surprised this man is dead, still surprises me to my bone, im a family friend

  3. The pain of loss cnt be over emphasized. Some sting u so hard and u carry d pain for a very long time. Amechi, pls accept my heartfelt condolence

  4. Rest on Dede.

    My condolences Oga Amaechi and family.

  5. Dede, continue to RIP.. I am so sorry for ur loss Mr Amaechi

  6. So sorry for your loss! Rest on Dede! To lose one's sibling or parent is a painful thing!

  7. May the soul of Dede and all the faithful departed through the mercy of God rest in peace

  8. Death is the most painful thing one can imagine. I wish God designed the death in such away that one must get to atleast 80 before death comes knocking. But it comes suddenly when one is not even prepared. My elder bros death still gives me shock till date, I pray God continue to heal and strengthen everyone passing through the pain of losing a loved one.RIP Deede.

  9. Oh so sad, I had goosebumps reading.

    Oga Rotimi be strong to continue,may God give your family the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.

    RIP Dede.

  10. Awwww am so sorry for your Loss.. Dede is in a Good place.. May his good and wonderful soul rest well...

  11. This got me all emosh,

    Rip Dede!

    Family is so important to me.

  12. RIP sir,so sorry for your loss sir
    How come they used the world DEDE and still claim not to be igbos? cos to the best of my knowledge, Dede means senior bros in imo, abia and some part of ebonyi state language

    1. Don’t mind them. For political reasons they disclaim Igbos.

    2. Must everything be about tribe? We speak English in Nigeria doesn't mean we're English people? There's an "Olu" in warri doesn't mean they're Yoruba people.

      That said RIP Dede... May your children benefit from the good seeds you sowed
