  In 1997, under the National Consensus Party (NCP), he was elected the First Executive Vice Chairman of Dunukofia Local Government Area. He was in that capacity until 1998 when that political process was truncated.

  In an emotion laden voice, his wife, Mrs Nmaegbunam Chiaghanam, said the late Afulukwe came, saw and lived victoriously, ‘The measure of a man is not in the duration but in its donation. Afulukwe lived reasonably long and his good deeds speak volumes. I can’t deny the fact that his large heart brought discomfort to the family sometimes; this was in his characteristics and incurable nature to better the lives of others. He was God fearing and such a wonderful person. I will miss him,’ she said.

 In a tribute, the first son, Emeka Chiaghanam, said “daddy, your life was memorable, in the little span that you walked the sands of time, you made a difference in people’s lives.  Whatever you cannot do for others remained out of your reach. Afulukwe as you were fondly called, many can attest to your generous and compassionate life.”
