" Death is something inevitable. When someone has done what he/ she considers to be their duty to the people and , community or country, they can rest in peace”

• Cosmos Maduka : On The Impact of His Wife on his life & career
The Coscharis President's deep emotional and pragmatic views in the meaningful impact of his late wife on his life and career is not a hidden secret
On July 8th 2020 he went on national broadcast to unveil the impact of his wife on his life and revealed how he built his billionaire status from scratch with his wife.
According to him, his wife believed in him when he had nothing to his name. The businessman stated that when he approached his wife to marry her, his pocket was empty, however, that did not stop his wife from seeing the future and agreeing to marry him. Maduka said that his interest in his wife almost cost him his life as her uncle shot at him with a gun on three different occasions.
In his word's
"When I approached her, my pocket was empty but my faith was full, so, many times, it's not the size of your pocket but she could see ahead.
"Actually, her parents thought she was insane and that made her uncle shot me three times. He said he would kill me because her parents were in the upper class in our village. It's just like an area boy going to Adenuga's house," stated the most pragmatic and public preaching billionaire Cosmos Maduka
• As the late Mrs Maduka is set to be committed to mother earth, we round up with this quote by the Great Mother Theresa which Says
"I am not sure exactly what heaven will be like, but I know that when we die and it comes time for God to judge us, he will not ask, ‘How many good things have you done in your life?’ rather he will ask, ‘How much love did you put into what you did?
Mrs Maduka in her short but eventful life on earth no doubt touched the lives of the poor,orphanages and widows year in and year out
We pray the good Lord of Psalms 20 bless all her sacrifices
Rest in peace !
