Working for conglomerates like UAC, his friends’ and family’s contributions to his community and humanity gave Chief Onyia some satisfaction but his happiness at being alive to watch the Africa
Athletics tour, the test event at the Stephen Keshi Stadium was overwhelming for him.
“ Seeing the opening ceremony was a very special day for me, now I am fulfilled, I trekked from
Okpanam to the Stadium,” said Chief Onyia who at 92 years of age walks
around without a walking stick, very coherent, agile and articulate.
Chief Onyia expressed his gratitude to His Excellency the Executive Governor of Delta State Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa for completing Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba.
