With a heavy heart, the President on behalf of the Executive Committee and the entire members of the Nigerian Association of Petroleum Explorationists (NAPE) announces the passing of a distinguished Fellow and Past President, Prof. Kingsley Anthony Ojoh, FNAPE, FNMGS aged 60 on Friday 23rd March 2018.
Prof. Ojoh was a valued and respected Fellow of our Association and a member of the Geosciences community, the Oil & Gas industry and the Clergy.
Coming as it did without warning, his passing was a shock as he was billed to deliver the Technical Presentation of the March 2018 NAPE Technical / Business Meeting scheduled to hold on Wednesday March 28th 2018 at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos in honour of his retirement from Total Nigeria.
We remember with gratitude, his dedicated service to our Association especially in the years he served as Editor-in-Chief in 1994/95, 1995/96, 1996/97 and President (2007-2008) and even up until his passing was still serving the association in one way or the other. His outstanding contributions to the Association and the practice of geology were exemplary.
With his passing, our Association, the earth science community, indeed the oil and gas industry has lost one of its most committed and finest members.
Our deepest sympathy, thoughts and heartfelt prayers are with his beloved family. May the Almighty God grant his gentle soul peaceful repose.
Obsequies as announced by the Ojoh Family.
Please note that the lecture that was scheduled to hold on March 28, 2018 to mark his retirement will still go on as planned but will now turn into a tribute in his honour.
I will like to use this medium to encourage all our esteemed members to please take advantage of this opportunity to pay our Prof. Kingsley Ojo his last respect.
May his soul rest in perfect peace. Amen.
Andrew Ejayeriese, fnape, fnmgs
NAPE President
