It is with the utmost sense of sadness and grief that I report the loss of two of our members as they were heading for the sensitization meeting in Ward 8 in Abua/Odual LGA. They were hit along the Ahoada-Abua-Degema Road near Egbolom Community where first aid was immediately applied to the victims on the spot. Unfortunately neither could be resuscitated and both where conveyed to the Abua General Hospital Mortuary. A third casualty survived and is recuperating in hospital.
The matter was then officially reported to the Divisional Police HQ following which I, in company of Hon. Victor Giadom, Hon. Asita Honourable, Hon. Udi Odum and other senior party members, went to meet the immediate family of the deceased.
Words can’t express the emotions that engulfed me in the presence of the husband, son and close relatives of the deceased nevertheless standing with them in grief was the right and noble thing to do.
At this point, I would like all true Rivers men and women, irrespective of party affiliations to pray for the affected families that God would grant them the grace and fortitude to bear this sudden and unfortunate loss.
We will stand by the families throughout this period and beyond.
God bless you all
