The Board and Management of the Nigerian Shippers’ Council (NSC) have paid a condolence visit to the family of the late Margaret Orakwusi according to a statement by Rakiya Dhikru-Yagboyaju, deputy director of the Public Relations Unit of the Nigerian Shippers’ Council
In a condolence letter presented by Samaila Abdullahi, the chairman of the Council’s Governing Board, the Board expressed shock over the news of the passing of one of them.
“We woke up to the very sad and devastating news of the death of our dear friend and sister, Margaret Onyema Orakwusi. While no one can question God Almighty, the suddenness of her passing was most shocking not only to us, her comrades on the Governing Board of Nigerian Shippers’ Council, but indeed to the generality of stakeholders in the maritime industry in Nigeria.
“Orakwusi was a consummate businesswoman, a great patriot, and easily one of the most successful, knowledgeable and important voices in the maritime sector of our country,” the letter said.
Emmanuel Jime, the executive secretary/ CEO of NSC, described the late Margaret Orakwusi as a rare gem, adding that she contributed greatly to the development of the nation’s maritime sector.
Jime who was represented by Adaku Okam, the director of the Human Resources Management Department of the Council, stated this during the condolence visit to the Orakwusi family in Ikoyi, Lagos.
