I narrowly missed titanic submarine tragedy – Ned Nwoko

The senator representing Delta North, Ned Nwoko, has revealed that he narrowly missed joining the ill-fated group of tourists who tragically perished during a submerged expedition to witness the remains of the Titanic.

In a message he shared on his official Instagram account on Friday, Nwoko expressed his grief over the demise of his dear friend, Hamish Harding, a prominent British business tycoon and one of the five individuals on board the ill-fated submersible named Titan.”

The statement reads, “We both went on a very dangerous expedition to the Southpole Antarctica few years back. He was a gulf stream pilot who flew across the world in a record breaking expedition by Guinness world record for circumnavigation of the earth some years ago.

“He descended into the Mariana. He also invited me on his space shuttle last year and this very Titan ill-fated adventure but I was tied down with national duties.

“Above all, he was a partner on the various researches into eradication of malaria in Africa project. He was very enthusiastic about it and always gave his support at every given opportunity.

“His last message to me was this last Sunday when he told me they were ready to dive to the titanic if the weather permits. He loved adventure and challenges.

“My heart bleeds for his dear wife and kids who have become family friends over the years. We will surely miss his wealth of experience.”
