WISTA Nigeria has joined the entire Nigerian maritime industry to mourn the recent demise of Barr Margaret Orakwusi
In a statement issued by the President of WISTA Nigeria, Mrs Eunice Ezeoke, she said the WISTA Nigeria family was thrown into deep shock by the sad news of Margaret Orakwusi’s sudden death.
Ezeoke described the late Orakwusi as a composite multitasker, an industry icon whose entrepreneurial excellence saw her traversing through her core legal profession, jetty operations, fish trawling, Board memberships, committees and various philanthropies.
“A soft spoken and enigmatic lady with demure, almost shy smiles that bellies razor sharp brilliance.
A loving and doting mother to her lovely children, she was a mentor and a great supporter of women professional associations not only in the Industry.
“She was a devout Catholic. A very modest and understated lady.
Someone described her as an angel on a brief sojourn to earth. We couldn’t agree more!
“Indeed, there may never be another like Margaret Orakwusi in the Maritime Family.
Rest in Peace till resurrection day our iconic WISTA Diamond Margaret” the statement read
