_As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a well-spent life brings happy death—Leonardo Davinci_
The member representing Ikwuano/Umuahia North and South Federal Constituency, Rep. Sam Onuigbo, joined the Nkume family at Ariam Elu-Elulu, Ariam/Usaka community, Ikwuano LGA, as they laid their matriarch, Chief Mrs. Eunice Nwadiuto Nkume to rest while celebrating her well-spent life.
Speaking at the occasion, Rep. Onuigbo condoled with the Nkume family, stating that while it is true that this might be a loss to the Nkume family, we should thank God for keeping mama Nnediuto to the ripe age of 90.
He went further to pray that God who led her through life would guide and give us all a long life.
“ On behalf of myself, my wife, the great people of Ikwuano/Umuahia North and South Federal Constituency whom I represent at the House of Representatives, and by the grace of God by extension Abia Central Senatorial District, I condole with the Nkume family for their loss, praying that God will continue to protect them”, he said.
He also seized this opportunity to thank all who offered him support, advice, and prayers in a bid to ensure that the political conflict “which had been raging for a while now is resolved.”
He said: “It is true that we have been in court for the past eight months, but I am happy that the court has justifiably settled this matter. I have called my brother, Hon. Emeka Atuma, and also sent him a text message which reminded him of the need to join hands together and collectively work for the progress of our community. “
“I have also seen the progress being made on the Umuahia-Ikwuano-Ikotekpene road and have noted their challenges, such as the availability of filling sand. I will do everything necessary to ensure that these challenges are resolved. I am also pleading for the support of stakeholder communities and individuals to ensure that this road is duly completed. I promised you that this road will be constructed, and I am happy that work is ‘progressing,” he said.
He concluded by advising electorates to be intentional about voting in credible leaders who would serve diligently to improve their lives.
Among Rep. Sam Onuigbo’s delegation are former education secretary, Chief Mrs. Ego Nwamuo, Chief Liaison Officer, Evang. Abraham Osondu, Mr. Chukwuemeka Uchegbu, Evang. Mrs. Salome Isikaku, Mr. Chibuzo Nwaozuru, and Mr. Chetachi Nwako.
