…As Ambassador Onoh presents Letter of Credence
From: Chidi Nnadi, Enugu
The President of the Republic of Namibia, Dr. Hage Geingob, has expressed happiness over the news which claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari is recuperating fast in London where he is undergoing further medical attention.
Geingob made this known at the weekend when Ambassador Lilian Onoh, daughter of former Governor of Old Anambra State, Chief C. C. Onoh, presented her Letter of Credence to the president as Nigeria’s High Commissioner to Namibia.
The president recalled Nigeria’s support for Namibia during her struggle for independence, saying that without Nigeria, apartheid would not have ended.
He reiterated his country’s commitment to Nigeria and thereafter raised a toast to the improving health condition of President Buhari.
Ambassador Lilian Onoh, who was accompanied by her sister, Ambassador Bianca Odumegwu-Ojukwu, Nigeria’s immediate past Ambassador to the Kingdom of Spain and other members of staff of the Nigeria High Commission to the state house in Windhoek, in her response pledged to strengthen the strong bonds existing between Nigeria and Namibia in collaboration with all stakeholders to make Nigeria, Namibia and indeed the entire continent stronger.
It would be recalled this is the first time in Nigeria’s history that two sisters have become ambassadors successively and under different administration.
Daily Sun gathered that prior to this appointment, Ambassador Lilian Onoh was the acting High Commissioner of Nigeria to Jamaica with concurrent accreditation to Belize, Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
