Chief Chris Kingdom Ghomorai
(Wedenesday, January 12, 1949 –Sunday December 21, 2008)

Until his passing on to the great beyond Nine years ago, he was the Managing Director of Basner Consult and Executive Chairman of Afromex Dredging and Construction Company Ltd.

Chief Chris Ghomorai was an invaluable asset not only to the Ijaw Nation and the Nigeria State in general but to the people of Kabowei Kingdom, Patani Local Government Area in Delta State, Ekise No 2, Quarters, Egonifia family Compound and his immediate family in particular.

For as a man of many colours, not only was Chief Chris Ghomorai an Administrator and a Business Executive of repute, he was also a great Politician, Ijaw cum Niger Delta Leader,  quiet Philanthropist, an Intellectual, a Banker and a Crusader for Justice particularly in the Ijaw struggle for self-determination,  Fairness and Equity.

As Vice President of the Ijaw National Congress –INC Worldwide (the umbrella organization for the Ijaw Nation), Chief Chris Ghomorai was a very active voice in the Niger Delta cause.

As a Politician, he seemed to have imbibed the philosophy of “the greatest president that Nigeria never had” the late sage and leader of the old Action Group (AG) Chief Jeremiah Obafemi Awolowo. Like the late sage Chief Chris Ghomorai was a Political Icon who never compromised his political principles, ever faithful and steadfast in what he believed in and presented his views in such an innocuous manner that you can only disagree with him but not fail to understand him.

Rest in Peace my GREAT UNCLE and MENTOR.
