So sad to hear of the passing of Clement Onyemelukwe, the “Father of Electricity” in Nigeria.
Onyemelukwe initiated the planning and development of the electricity grid still used in Nigeria today when he became Chief Electrical Engineer in 1962.
The second photo is of my copy of his wife Catherine’s book, Nigeria Revisited: My Life and Loves Abroad.
The book is a personal memoir of Catherine’s journey to Nigeria. The relationships, multiculturalism, hardships, dangers and ultimately the unbreakable bond that developed between her and Nigeria.
Photo 3 is of their wedding in 1964
