Chief Christopher Kingdom Ghomorai

The Leader Moves On.....

My father was a wonderful man. He was a good father, dependable and kindhearted to one and all. He was also the most generous person I knew. He once told me that God has given everyone at least one talent. For some people, it is the ability to sing beautifully, others to preach, but for him, it was the ability to give and he did. He gave constantly, without inhibition.

Daddy was also a good listener. There isn't a problem I had that he couldn't help me with and although he is gone, I will always have the lessons he taught me. It is terribly hard to say goodbye. Instead, I'll say till we meet again daddy, fare thee well.

Tounbra Cynthia Ghomorai

Chris Ghomorai was a great man. This is a fact I am sure many would agree to. The greatness of this man is not being measured in material wealth of one sort or the other. Rather, the greatness here is measured by the size of his heart.

My father Chief Chris Ghomorai, had a heart of gold. He loved to give and in a strange way loved to take as well. He loved to give to people, no matter their stance in society, a chance at an improved life, a second chance to do better in life and above all, the tool for improved living. This tool simply refers to education. I was once told that the best thing you can do for a man is not to aid him financially, but rather give him knowledge. My father was a strong believer in the importance and neccessity of a solid education and he always did the best he could to give this.

As mentioned earlier, he also loved to take. This simply refers to the fact that he loved to take as his own, the problems of his family, friends and the Ijaw Nation as a whole. He was always the one to come to when in need of a way out or just advice of some sort. He cared for the problems of all and treated every matter with love and respect. As far as I am concerned, this shows an attribute of a truly great man. This shows some of the attributes of the great Chief Chris Ghomorai, my father.

May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace.

Tienador Ghomorai

Everyone's best friend. A man of principles. A man of culture. The most welcoming soul. He used every opportunity to teach everyone. He spent his life preparing for eternity. An extremely selfless heart. He never needed two shirts on his back. His investment in my life and in others will last forever.

Dear Chris Ghomorai, it was a pleasure. I thank God for giving me the privilege of being your daughter. May I make you proud as you have made your family, frinds and colleagues proud. You may be physically gone, but nothing can take your presence in my heart and mind away.

Rest in the Lord. You've earned it.

Tarela Ghomorai

A Great Leader takes Exit

It is with grief and heavy heart that I join other well meaning leaders within the Ijaw Nation to commiserate with the GHOMORAIS and the entire Patani community in the exit of a Titan, a great leader, and a frontline crusader for the emancipation of the Ijaws CHIEF CHRIS GHOMORAI who met his untimely death in an autocrash on the 20th of Dec 2008.

The fact that you were on your way to attend an important meeting of the INC when death struck tells volumes about what you stood for during your days. Those of us who believed in your leadership are consoled by your worthwhile and steadfast style.

Live in the bossom of the Lord until we meet to part no more.

Annkio Briggs,


On behalf of the Arogbo-Ijaws resident in Bayelsa State, I commiserate with heavy heart and deep sense of loss with the Ghomorai family, the Kabowei Kingdom in Patani Local Government Area of Delta State and the entire Ijaw Nation on the untimely death of a distinguished leader in the Ijaw Nation, CHIEF CHRIS GHOMORAI, immediate past Vice-President of the Ijaw National Congress which death occured in a road mishap on the 20th of December 2008.

Uncle Chris, we will miss your leadership qualities and your efforts in bringing the Ijaws under one umbrella. Adieu, a social crusader for justice and equity.

Barr. Olu Ojujoh
Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.

Good night, Uncle Chris

The demise of Uncle Chris came as a surprise to us in Ijaw Nation. We never believed that you'll leave us at a time the struggle for the emancipation of the Ijaws is at its peak.

You were always at the forefront in this struggle and we will miss you greatly now that you have gone without accomplishing your dream os seeing the Ijaw man control his God- given resources.

We have lost a rare gem in the Ijaw struggle no doubt, but we take solace in the fact that you lived a fulfilled life.

Adieu, Uncle Chris

Dr. F.K. Ajih

Our Frind Is Gone

Chris Ghomorai, our dear friend with whom we have known for over two decades, a friend with whom we were so closely knitted by the Ijaw struggle is gone forever.

We find it difficult to believe that Chris is dead, but his death has a sting which pain will last forever. Though Chris is gone, but his works in INC, CENND and other organizations he left behind for us in the struggle will not be left to suffer.

our challenge as his friends is to keep the dream alive. The Ijaw nation will miss Chris Ghomorai for the vacuum created by his demise is irreplaceable.

We will miss your fearlessness, vibrancy and dynamism. We however, take solace in your track records which have given inspiration to remain in the struggle.

Rest in the Bossom of the Lord untill we meet to part no more.

The Man with a great passion for Ijaw Nation


The beauty of a flower is never seen until the seed cracks, germinates and flourishes before its fascinating colour blossom in the eyes of the beholder. The fragrance of flour is not appreciated until it is pollinated and helped by the cool nice breeze.

 Such was the case of a handsome young man who by destiny came into the family of late Amakosiowei of Kabowei Kingdom, Pa Akpovi Ghomorai of Egonifia family in Ekise No. 2 Quarter of Patani community in Delta state, and late Madam Malanti Ghomorai (nee Tawari) of Okologbosi in Asamabiri Town of Sagbama Local Government Area of Bayelsa State almost six decades ago.

Going by name Christopher Kingdom Ghomorai, he was a fine scholar who lived all his life in the quest of serving his fatherland as he made people of all class of life to love and adore him. A brilliant and an intelligent man whose light glowed maximally, Chief Chris Ghomorai marched into a career for the strong, bold and courageous people of his time. A man of consummate skill, immense scholarship, humane and candid he was the  National Vice President of Ijaw National Congress (INC) whose laughter was contagious, his anger an electric shock, but great were his soothing and pleasant words to get issues straightened out.

 A Nationalist with great passion for the Niger Delta course, late Chief Chris Ghomorai passed on to the great beyond as a result of a ghastly auto crash that precisely occurred at the early hours of Saturday December 20, 2008 on the Ohoro-Patani axis of the East-West road in Delta state, on his way to Ogbia in Bayelsa state, where he was supposed to attend the Central Working Committee (CWC) meeting of the INC to finalize preparations for the Ijaw National Congress (INC) General elections scheduled for January 10, 2009.

 In the entourage with him were Elder Dominic Aboro who was also an Ijaw Nationalist and his cousin, then Mr. Robinson Ogunkoru, INC Organizing Secretary and Mr. Pereowei Dudoh his driver.

 As an eye witness account explained, his car had a head-on collusion with another car whose occupants were lecturers of the Niger Delta University believed to be coming from Yenegoa the Bayelsa State capital in the opposite direction.

Fatal accident it was!!! Elder Dominic Aboro died on the spot along with the occupants of the other car, while Chris Ghomorai was seriously injured and was rushed to the University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH), Benin City in Edo State, where he lost the battle for life at about 1.00am Sunday December 21, 2008.

 He was initially rushed to a private hospital at Ughelli in Delta State, but when news of the accident got to Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta state, he immediately directed his commissioner for health, Dr. J. Otumara, to step in and personally take charge and co-ordinate activities to save his life.

 Bayelsa State government, through the Deputy Governor was also said to have provided ambulance and other services to save the life of the INC leader Chief Chris Ghomorai who was said to be returning from the burial ceremony of the father-in-law of Honourable Peremobowei Ebebi. Incidentally, the dead lecturers were also going for the same ceremony that he was returning from. While his driver Mr. Pereowei Dudoh too gave up the ghost some days after, Mr. Ogunkoru, the other occupant in Chief Ghomorai’s car was recently discharged from Hospital.

 An administrator and business executive of repute, Chief Chris Ghomorai was born on January 12, 1949 in Patani in the then Western region now Delta state. He attended St. Anthony Primary School, Asamabiri in the then Western region now Sagbama LGA in Bayelsa state 1954-1958. He later traveled to Ghana and attended Ghana International School Accra Ghana, where he spent only three months at the School between September and December 1962. He returned to Nigeria to attend Ibadan Boys High School between February and December 1963 and ended up at International School University of Ibadan, between January 1964 and June 1967.

From 1967-1968, he attended Bryaston School Blandford, Dorset in the United Kingdom England and sat for his ‘A’ Levels in 1968.

Young Ghomorai got admission to pursue his university education by joining the premier University of Ibadan in 1968 graduating with a B.Sc (Hon.) Zoology degree in 1972. He later got an MBA from the University of Lagos in 1976.

Chris Ghomorai as a young graduate taught briefly in Bomadi Grammar School, Bomadi in the then Mid-West State. Today, that part of the defunct Mid-West is now Delta State. Thereafter, his first port of call to work was at Ethiope Publishing Corporation in Benin City, where he served as Production Editor from August 1973 to July 1974, then Literamed Publications Ltd, Lagos as Production Manager from 1977 to April 1978.

In October 1978, he joined the Daily Times of Nigeria Ltd., Lagos as Deputy General Manager, Times Press Ltd., Lagos and left in October 1982 for R.T.Briscoe Nigeria Ltd., Lagos where he was Head and Manager of Graphics Department. After about three years with the company, Chris resigned his appointment and took up appointment as Head of Administration with the International Merchant Bank IMB, Lagos in August 1985 and later Manager Treasury Department in 1988.

He served in that capacity till November 1990 when he was called to higher service as Commissioner of Finance and Economic Planning with the defunct Bendel State Public service. When Delta state was created, he continued to maintain the office of Finance Commissioner in the new state till January 1992.

Until his death recently, he was the Managing Director of Basner Consult and Executive Chairman of Afromex Dredging and Construction Company Ltd.

 The death of Chief Chris Ghomorai is a colossal loss to the Ijaw Nation and the nation in general but the people of Kabowei Kingdom and Patani Local Government Area in particular. For as a man of many colours not only was he an Administrator and business Executive of repute he was also a great politician, Ijaw Leader, quiet philanthropist, intellectual, banker and a crusader for justice particularly in the Ijaw struggle for self-determination, justice, fairness and equity as Vice President, Chief Chris Ghomorai was a very active voice in the Niger Delta struggle.

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.

As commissioner for Finance in the then Military Administration of B/Gen. John E. Yeri (rtd) he was Chairman of the 1.5% Derivation Fund of the defunct Bendel State. Chief Chris Ghomorai played a vital role in the award of contract and execution of the Patani Electrification project which eventually connected the Local Government headquarters and its environs to the National Grid. The Leader as he is fondly called in political circles, also played a vital role in the establishment of the Boys Model Secondary School, Patani by the defunct Bendel State Government. Chief Chris Ghomorai solely influenced the sitting of the flood protection project in Patani, which was executed by Nigerian Dredging and Marine (NDM) Nig. Ltd. The late Chief’s contribution to the political life of the old Bomadi and Patani Local Government Areas in particular cannot be over-emphasized. There is no gainsaying the fact that virtually none of the present day political leaders in Patani Local Government Area could write the history of his or her own political success story without mentioning of the name Chris Ghomorai.

No less highly remarkable was his philanthropic character. Indeed his philanthropic activities knew no bounds, especially in the area of youth’s empowerment through education apart from direct financial assistance to needy individuals and organizations. A good number of young men and women owe their Secondary and University Education to Chief Chris Ghomorai.

 His contributions to the maintenance of peace and security were not limited to his Local Government Area but cut across the entire Niger Delta. For instance, Chief Chris Ghomorai was a High Chief in Egbema Clan in Edo State in recognition of his service in this direction.

 A strong believer in justice, fairness and equity Chief Chris Ghomorai was among the Founding Fathers of the Ijaw National Congress (INC). He was one of the pillars that gave both moral and financial support to the formation of the organization and many other socio-cultural organizations including the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC), the moribund Patani Youths Association (PYA) and a host of others.

 Indeed so committed was the late Chief to the Ijaw struggle for justice and fair-play in the Nigerian Federation that his eventual emergence as the National Vice President of the INC did not come as a surprise to all Ijaw sons and daughters both at home and abroad, a post he held until his death in active service on Sunday 21st December, 2008. Records also have it that he was once National Organizing Secretary of the Ijaw National Congress (INC).

 Chief Chris Ghomorai was a devout Catholic and wedded to Barrister (Mrs.) Victoria Ghomorai (nee Akangbou). They are blessed with six children (Timendu, Tarela, Tonbra, Tokoni, Tienador and Tonye).

 “The Leader” will surely be missed mostly by his immediate family, the Kabowei kingdom where he had played prominent role by positively touching and uplifting the people’s economic and socio-political status including the entire Ijaw nation spanning from Ondo, Edo, Delta, Bayelsa, Rivers and Akwa-Ibom states and also Nigeria state in general.

 Like all mortals Chris fell to the icy hands of death at a time the Ijaw nation needed his expertise most.

 Chris Ghomorai worked and died toiling for Ijaw emancipation; this was the centrepiece of his passion for humanity. He was a champion of the Niger Delta struggle and appreciative of God’s goodness and mercies throughout his life.

So far the burial arrangement for the late Leader has been slated for the second week of the month March 2009, starting from Wednesday March 11, 2009 there will be a Public Lecture organized by friends and Associates of late Hon. Chief Chris Ghomorai in honour of the great leader. The venue of the Public Lecture is Petroleum Training Institute at Warri Delta State, this will be followed with a Service of song at his residence in Benin on Thursday March 12 then on Friday March 13, 2009 there will be an Open Air Service Mass at his home town Patani Delta state and interment follows immediately at his Ogonifia family compound in Ekise Quarter, Patani

Further enquiries on the burial programme could be channeled through Chief (Hon.) C.F.Abeki 08080488026 Chairman Late Chief Chris Ghomorai Family Burial Committee; Mr. Fresh Ugboma 07088795235 and Presidor Ghomorai 08038028225 all members of the committee.     

Adieu Leader, may his gentile soul rest in perfect peace.

So it is true that Chris Ghomorai is dead? I just can't believe it at all. I dealt with Chris when I was the President of the Ijaw Peoples Association (IPA) of Great Britain and Ireland, and I found him to be a man of great integrity, and a total believer in the Ijaw Cause; a great and committed writer on our issues. The Ijaw Nation have lost an Illustrious son.

It is a sad day for all of us. He will be sadly missed by all those who knew him as well as all those that read his paper and writings.

God has given and God has taken away. May his soul rest in perfect peace.

Part of me died too today. Chris is a well respected and loved son of Asamabiri, where his mother hails from. Although, he was much older, he played soccer with us, shared his time with us, and counseled us as youngsters in the primary school. Though, I never set my eyes on him since the mid 60's, I still have memories of the days we spent together.

He will be gravely missed in Asamabiri town. May his soul rest in peace.

Yesterday, Brother Presidor Ghomorai informed us of Brother Chris accident and subsequent comatose state; and, later in the day, Brother Joe Evah led the Izon Community in Lagos in prayers for him (at the Installation of Chief Sikaboro as Izon Boladaowei of Lagos, which had OPC's Dr. Frederick Fashehun & Arewa Youth's Shettima Yerima in attendance).

This morning Brother Patterson broke the death-news!

It is a great loss to Ijawnation, in a season when we have been mourning for many Izon brethren (e.g. Prof Don Pedro of University of Lagos).

May Chris Ghomorai's soul rest in perfect peace. Amen.

Sylva condoles families of dead INC chief, lecturers

Written by VANGUARD
Wednesday, 24 December 2008
Governor Timipre  Sylva of Bayelsa State has expressed sympathy to the families of the Ijaw National Congress (INC) vice president, Chief Chris Ghomorai, and the four lecturers of Niger Delta University who died on Saturday in a ghastly motor accident at Ohoro, along the Ughelli-Patani road in Delta State.

Sylva said “It was with a great sense of loss that I heard of the death of the illustrious Ijaw leader and the four lecturers of our university. I want to let you know that you have my greatest sympathy and my heart is truly saddened.”

The governor said, “Chief Ghomorai was not just a great leader of the Ijaw and the Niger Delta, he was always so compassionate and accommodating of other ideas that we always welcomed seeing him at every opportunity.”

“His passing will not only leave a void in our lives and in the hearts of all those who knew him, it will also leave an empty space in the heart of the Niger Delta at this critical stage of our transition.” On the four lecturers of Niger Delta University, Sylva said, “they will always remain in our hearts.

Their contributions to the development of this citadel of learning in the Niger Delta heartland will always stand as a memorial to their good lives and works.”

While explaining death as a necessary end of every living soul, the governor prayed God to give the families of the deceased the strength to bear the loss.

“We will always hold tight to the adorable memories of the departed for comfort,” Sylva said. He pledged that his government would strive to lessen the pain of the bereaved families.
