The Governor of Abia state Dr Okezie Ikpeazu has commiserated with the family of Hon Edwin Adiele Ekeke (ADICO) a Commissioner in ASOPADEC, over the untimely death of his beautiful wife and wonderful children, which occurred through a fatal motor accident. The Governor who was ably represented by his Deputy Rt Hon Ude Oko Chukwu, said it is regrettably painful and devastating to lose very close and dear ones especially a loving and caring wife and promising children. Honestly, I am not unaware of the trauma and sense of loss you (Hon Adiele) have been passing through as a husband and father since the sad incident of 10th August 2019, wherein you (Hon Adiele) lost a true companion, confidant, the love of your darling wife and two wonderful children to the cold hands of death. He further encouraged Hon Adiele, the people of Ohanku Ndoki and others affected to take heart and look up to God Almighty who knows the end of every mortal from the beginning for abiding consolation, grace and strength to live on with the reality of the sad development.
Responding, the younger brother to Hon Adiele, thanked the Governor and government of Abia state for their kindness, support and encouragement towards the family since the ugly incident happened, as he prayed for journey mercies to all who attended the burial ceremony.
