The Enduring Legacy of Engr. Jonathan Odega: BruvsChess Media Pays Tribute to Orchid-Lekki Chess Club’s Founder


    The Nigeria chess community is saddened by the loss of Engr. Jonathan Odega, a successful entrepreneur and passionate chess lover who made a big impact on Nigerian Chess.

    His love for chess was clear to everyone. He started the Orchid-Lekki Chess Club (OLCC), a place where chess enthusiasts could gather and enjoy the game together. Under his leadership, the OLCC organized chess tournaments with the Nigeria Chess Federation (NCF). These events were highly regarded nationally and continentally, displaying players’ talents and creating a strong sense of community.

    Engr. Odega went beyond business to support chess. He generously utilized his hotel, Orchid Hotel, located in Lekki, to lodge players during tournaments, ensuring their comfort and well-being with exceptional hospitality and provisions.

    BruvsChess Media join the chess community to mourn the loss of Engr. Jonathan Odega, remembering his business success and his dedication to chess in Nigeria. His memory will live on, and we send our deepest sympathies to his family, friends, and colleagues. May he rest in peace, knowing he made a lasting impact on the chess world.
