The number of years one spends on earth do no really count if those years are not invested in oneself, and humanity.
There is also no denying the fact that no human being transfers his or her wealth to the abode as life he or she lives on earth counts as legacies he or she might be remembered for.
Perhaps, the mystery about life transaction is that biography of one is often read on the day of his or her funeral: be that as it may, wikipedia and ourworldgist ( www.ourworldgist.com ) take accounts of exceptional people who have distinguished themselves in their callings and deeds to roll out their biographies even while these people are still alive.
It is against this background that Ourworldgist who is in the business of recognising such personalities has shingled out Chief Ogwu James Onoja ( SAN ) @53 to define his person properly.
