The Owner of Tonimas Groups, Sir Chief Dr. Anthony Obiagboso Enukeme is dead.
Tonimas Group is a multi-million naira manufacturing company that deals on Oil and Gas production and a wide range of other products such as plastics, aluminium products and high-quality drinking water.
The late Chief is known to be one of the most successful Igbo men in Nigeria; he held the Onowu title in his community, Neni Town, Anambra State.
According to reports, he died yesterday June 8, 2020. National Chairman of All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Ozonkpu Dr. Victor Ike Oye confirmed this in a press release today being Tuesday, June 9, 2020.
The statement reads:
APGA HAS LOST A RARE GEM: ONOWU ANTHONY ENUKEME (TONIMAS)
The news hit me like a ballistic missile. I was dazed, shocked, and thrown into a mental fixation. How can he die like that? I queried. But no answer coming from anywhere.
As I wrote this short tribute my hand was trembling. Tonimas dead? I keep asking. It can’t be. My head swirling and my heart beating in quick succession.
A good man has joined the Saints. Since I met him it has been one good act or another recorded for him. He single-handed built a church in his hometown, Neni; celebrated annual yam festival for his people, and gave generously to numerous church and philanthropic causes.
He loved APGA with passion. He attended our last National Convention in Awka where he was elected a BOT member.
Oh, Lord, my God! How do we bear this burden of the loss of one of our pillars?
I can’t continue. I am losing balance. Let me wait till the reality sinks before I can do a more befitting tribute.
Chief Enukeme died at the age of 76.
