Outstanding Eulogies As ‘Mama Heritage’ Takes A Bow
It was a magnificent outing at the NCMM Headquarters in Abuja when the Department of Monuments, Heritage & Sites threw a stellar send-off party in honour of Ms. Victoria Ndidi Osuagwu who on the 7th of March, 2023 retired from the service of the Commission after Thirty-Five years of meritorious contributions.
A massive outpour of encomiums from invited guests and staff members across all Departments underscored the pleasant personality and disposition of the retiree.
At the ceremony, the Director-General, Prof Abba Tijani, who was represented by the Director of Museums, extolled Ms. Osuagwu due to her outstanding qualities of intelligence, diligence and meticulousness, virtues he said are rarely combined in just one person.
Highpoints of the event were presentation of gifts, cutting of the retirement cake and dance by the retiree with her fellow Directors who were all in attendance to honour one of their own.
Born on 12th July 1963 in Owerri, Ms. Osuagwu attended the prestigious Queens College, Yaba, Lagos for her secondary education, and the great University of Nigeria, Nsukka, where she graduated with combined honours degree in History and Archaeology.

Ms. Victoria Osuagwu goes down in the annals of the NCMM as the 6th Director of Monuments, Heritage & Sites and the 1st female in that position.
We all wish her a very pleasant retirement and Good luck in her next level of service to humanity
