The Elendus Stage Burial Carnival For Dad

For Prince Gift, Ugochukwu, Wenenda, Daniel and Temple. Saturday,
September 24, 2016, was a day to remember. That was the day their father and
role model, Pa Gibson Yayi Elendu was buried.

Interred at his ancestral town, Elibrada in Emuoha local
government area of Rivers State, the funeral service which was attended by the
high and mighty, including Nigeria’s Honorable Minister of Transportation, Rt
Hon. Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi ably represented by the members of the state Party
executive council, legislators, contestants of the National Assembly elections
in the state and leaders of thought, was more like a carnival.
Pa Elendu’s journey to glory started with his shocking
demise in the 2nd quarter of the year 2016, at 84. On Friday, September
23, 2016, a Christian wake was organized for the philanthropist, which was pioneered
by Salvation Ministries international Church in Emuoha LGA of the state.

 The remains of late Pa Gibson Yayi Elendu was laid to rest
on Saturday, September 24, at the Elendus’ compound Elibrada, Emuoha, Rivers
State amidst torrents of eulogies from his family and thousands he influenced
their lives.
Expectedly, a massive party commenced shortly after the
interment with different interest groups, contemporary bands and entertainers
who accorded the versatile grassroots politician a befitting rite of passage.
A thanksgiving service was next in line as the Elendus’
family all worshiped together at the Salvation Ministries Church in Elibrada on
Sunday 25th September 2016. A short Photo session came afterwards as
the entire Family stood for photographs with their mother and wife of the late
Pa Gibson Yayi Elendu.
