Rear Admiral Mike Ojinika Onah, retd, the Ochi-Aha 1 of Ndokwa land led dignitaries that attended the burial ceremony of Chief Peter Ajieh, held at Owa-Alidinma town.

All road yesterday, May 13, 2017 led to the burial ceremony of Chief Peter Ajieh. Until his death, he lived all his life at Utagba-Uno, the traditional home of the seven (7) clan of Utagba-Uno in Ndokwa West LGA of Delta state.

Chief Peter Ajieh succeeded with many wives and nineteen (19) children. Well wisher, friends, children, in-laws, wives, and grand children were present in the occasion with three separate live band to entertain guests.

On arrival of Rear Admiral Mike Ojinika Onah, there was loud ovation in honour to the occasion. Everyone present had to stand still as a mark of respect to a man who had served Nigeria navy in various capacities. He is well respected in Ndokwa land because he is a philanthropic.

Mike Onah is a man that has helped many Ndokwa sons and daughter to succeed in life. He derives joy in giving, a man with large heart. I remember the day I went to visit him in his home at Utagba-Uno for job assist.

He ponders a while and said, there is a man from the same community with you. Do you know him, he asks! I said yes. Ok, I will give you a note to him. He prepares the note and handed it to me. I left the next day for Lagos to deliver the note; however, the person because of his attitude to people could not as at then be of help.

The man is from the same town with me but as you may know, people knows him as that who doesn’t care about his people…and that record is there for him. If that man had been in that occasion, nobody will welcome him, irrespective of his wealth, he should have arrived there like every other person.

I’m sorry for deviating a bit but such is the life. What will people remember you for after you might have gone to the great beyond? It’s not enough to make money. How many lives have you torched while your wealth last. Are you the type that climb up, and remove the ladder?

Remember, one good turns deserves another. That is why the burial ceremony of late Peter Ajieh was attended by many from all walks of life. So be nice to people you meet at the top. You really can’t tell who will help you tomorrow.
