Edwin Achum, a chief, philanthropist and community leader, from Achalla in Awka north local government area of Anambra state, south-east Nigeria, died last week Friday in Lagos, at the age of 80 years.
But, while on this earth plane, the late Achum, born in Achalla, March 15, 1943, was trained at the University of Nigeria Nsukka-Nigeria, where he bagged a degree in sociologist and anthropologist.
He distinguished himself and served our country with an estimated population of 203 million people now, devotedly. Today, he is dead and far gone.
This is indeed Godly, humanitarian and therefore worthy of emulation. In a country ravaged by corruption, Edwin was a rare gem.
