Chief Emeka Anyaoku was born on 18 January 1933. He was the third Commonwealth Secretary-General. He is a Nigerian of Igbo descent.

He attended the University College of Ibadan, then a college of the University of London, from which he obtained an honours degree in Classics.

In 1959, Emeka Anyaoku joined the Commonwealth Development Corporation. Following Nigeria’s independence, he joined Nigeria’s diplomatic service, and in 1963 was posted to its Permanent Mission to the United Nations in New York.
Emeka Anyaoku is an Anglican, his father having converted to that faith. He writes that he is, “very comfortable being an Anglican, comfortable with the beliefs that Anglicanism represents.

Aside from his international career, Chief Anyaoku continues to fulfill the duties of his office as Ichie Adazie of Obosi, a traditional Ndichie chieftainship. In 1990, the heads of all 19 communities of the Idemili Clan in his home state of Anambra accorded Anyaoku a unique honour by investing him with the title of Ugwumba Idemili. His wife, Bunmi, is also a chieftainess – Ugoma Obosi and Idemili – in her own right, with a long involvement in welfare work in Nigeria and throughout the Commonwealth.

Chief Anyaoku has been married to Princess Bunmi Anyaoku since 1962. Princess Anyaoku is an Omoba of Abeokuta, Nigeria. Of their marriage, it was written in the Nigerian Sunday Times, then the widest circulating newspaper in the country, that “it was a wedding of one of Nigeria’s most eligible bachelors and a beautiful young Princess educated in an English boarding school and Pitman College, London.”
They have four children, Adiba; their daughter, and three sons; Oluyemisi, Obiechina, and Emenike. Emeka has two grandchildren, born to Adiba and her husband; Irenne Ighodaro and Osita Ighodaro.
