Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Abia State, Alex Otti, has commiserated with Governor Okezie Ikpeazu on the death of her mother, Deaconess Bessie Ikpeazu, who died at the age of 87.
In his letter of condolence, Otti urged the bereaved family “to take solace in the fact that as a practicing Christian, “who held tenaciously to her faith in the Lord, she accomplished in no small measure, the very essence of man on earth.”
He said that although, it would have been wished that she lived longer, it was gratifying that she lived a long and fulfilled life and left an enviable legacy.
He further stated that the deceased lived an exemplary life, “having touched the lives of those around her positively.”
“It is my understanding that she also made remarkable contribution towards the uplift and overall well – being of the womenfolk in Umuobiakwa village and neighbouring communities in Obingwa Local Government Area of the state,” Otti said.
He prayed that God shall grant Ikpeazu, his relations and the Umuobiakwa village the grace and fortitude to bear the loss. End
