The Sun MD, Ukeh, loses father-in-law
Silas Nwachukwu, the father-in-law of the Managing Director/Editor-in-Chief, The Sun Publishing Limited, has died. He was 78 years of age.
Born a prince in 1943 to the late Eze Gabriel Uganwa of Umugakwo, Eziama Ngor-Okpala, now in Ochulu Autonomous Community, Ngor-Okpala Local Council, Imo State, worked at Cadbury Nigeria Plc as a salesman in the 1960s, first in Western Region, where they used megaphone to promote Bournvita and Pronto in the streets.
He was serving in the Eastern Region when the civil war broke out but was the only Cadbury staff in the Eastern Region who returned the company’s property in his possession, including a brand new pick-up van, money and products, through John Holt in Enugu, for onward return to Lagos.
His other colleagues converted theirs to personal use.
