Leaders of Conscience under the auspices of Nigeria Intervention Movement (NIM) has expressed regret over the death of Veteran Actress, Rachael Oniga, who died on Friday at 64 years, after a brief illness.
NIM, a mass movement co chaired by Olisa Agbakoba, SAN and Dr Abduljeleel Tafawa Balewa in a press statement made available to Prime Business Africa on Saturday, extoled the late actress and pledged to immortalize her.
The statement which was signed by Sir Olawale Okunniyi, Director General of NIM, further read, “It will be recalled that Rachel Oniga as a member of the leadership of the Nigeria Intervention Movement during her lifetime, helped to promote the ideals and values of the group tremendously. She was at the inaugural meeting of the movement at BON Hotels, Asokoro, Abuja on November 28, 2017, where she spoke as the voice of the Nigerian Nollywood.
“She was a very committed Ambassador of the movement agenda to take back power to the masses of Nigeria and she was involved in the movement accords in some states of the federation and at the National level, which yielded results during the 2019 elections. Lady Racheal Oniga, a Title Chief of Ile Ife, installed by Oba Sijuwade Olubuse, lived and died as a voice of the voiceless.
“Our consolation in her exit, is drawn from a life well spent by the screen goddess and ambassador of the voiceless. We therefore pray for the repose of her soul and fortitude to bear this huge loss by her children and family members. We hope to explore a way of immortalizing her legacies in succeeding days. Racheal Oniga lives on.”
