Ex President, Olusegun Obasanjo has praised the literary prowess of Prof. Mark Nwagwu in his latest work, “Time Came Upon Me.”
Obasanjo revealed this at the presentation of Nwagwu’s book which he dedicated to the memory of his wife, Prof. Helen Nwagwu.
Mr Olusegun described the late Helen Nwagwu as a confidant that was close to him, and he was always amazed at the love and friendship that existed between her and her husband, Prof. Mark Nwagwu, which resulted in him immortalising her.
His words, “The book launch is part of the celebration of life. Mark, I know you have not only lost your wife but you have lost a friend and a confidant.
“The consolation is that she is resting in the bosom of our Lord; may her gentle soul to continue to rest in peace,”
The book reviewer, Prof. Remi Raji-Oyelade also said, “I titled this review as “Time Came Upon Me to How to Love a Woman Forever.”
“Mark Nwagwu has been able to dedicate and devote his collection to his wife, Prof. Helen Nwagwu, who lived between March 1943 and March 2018.
“It is a unique feat by an African poet and notably is his consistency which revolves around the theme of love in an ever refreshing forms and perspective.
“It does not fall into a tedious monotony either as a volume or in relation to other collections before it.”
