Publisher Of THEWILL Newspaper Austyn Ogannah Fetes Dignitaries At Mother’s Burial

The Oganah family of Ogbe-Obi, Onicha-Ugbo of Aniocha North Local Government Area of Delta State, led by Austyn Ogannah, the Publisher/CEO and Editor-in-Chief of THEWILL Newspaper and Downtown Magazine threw a befitting funeral ceremony to bid their matriarch, Ezinne Princess Roseline Obiajulu Oganah a final goodbye. The event held last weekend.

It was mixed emotions for the family. While on one hand, they were joyous she lived a good and fulfilled life, having passed on at the ripe old age of 83, they were on the other hand, sad that the late octogenarian who was a rallying point for the family was no more.

The funeral ceremony kicked off with a wake/vigil mass on the evening of Thursday March 27, at All Saints Catholic Church, Onicha-Ugbo, Aniocha North, Delta State. The following day, Friday March 28, there was a brief lying-in-state before a funeral mass which was also held at the same church. Interment followed immediately after at the family residence at Ishiekpe Quarters, Isele-Uku, Onicha-Ugbo.
The bereaved family contracted Apams Funeral Homes, one of the foremost funeral homes operating in the South East and the Federal Capital Territory, FCT to handle the burial process.

Reception followed immediately after at Austyn’s country home where he feted dignitaries from all walks of life such as Prince Nduka Obaigbena, Publisher/CEO and Editor-in-Chief, ThisDay Newspaper and founder, ARISE TV; Olumide Akpata, the immediate past president of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA; Kingsley Obiora, Deputy Governor in charge of Economic Policy, Central Bank of Nigeria;Executive Director, NIMASA, Rt. Hon. Engr. Victor Ochei, Chiedu Ebie, a former Secretary to Delta State Government; Ayodele Aminu, Managing Director, New Telegraph Newspaper; Charles Aigbe, Deputy Vice President, Community Relations at HEIRS Oil and Gas; Emem Usoro, Executive Director, Northern Nigeria, UBA; Chalya Shagaya, Editor-at-Large, THEWILL DOWNTOWN Magazine; Adejare Adegbenro, businessman and philanthropist etc.

Highly sought after Godbless and Eboni Band were on hand to entertain guests. Late Princess Oganah who passed on, on Monday, February 20, 2023, was a senior civil service official for many years as a secondary school Vice Principal in the Delta State Civil Service.

She is survived by her children – Austyn Ogannah, Uche Maidoh, Prince Tony Oganah, Dr. Beatrice Oganah-Ikunjeyo, Dr. Pamela Irabor, Prince Alfred Oganah and several grandchildren.
