IKONNE’S DEPARTURE: Tears, Not Politics YPP’s Wachuku mourns
Chief Chuku Wachuku has condoled the entire family of Ikonne over the death of Professor Uchenna Eleazar Ikonne, who until his death was the Governorship Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in Abia State. In a condolence message personally signed by him, Chief Chuku Wachuku mourns:
“The news of the unfortunate death of Professor Uche Eleazar Ikonne has come to me as a rude shock. My heart goes out to the immediate family; the wife, children and particularly Dr. Chikezie Ikonne over the sudden departure of their patriarch and my dearly beloved brother.
Professor Ikonne and I had enjoyed close and cordial relationship as brothers. I feel pained that he had to exit the stage at a time like this. I mourn my dear brother, I feel sorrow in my heart, I pray for the peaceful repose of his soul.
Receiving the most terrible news of the year even on my way to Umuahia for a scheduled programme, I had to suspend my movement and put on hold all other activities for the rest of the week, to respect and honour a great friend, brother and erudite son of Nsulu, whom I had shared so many things in common.
“I urge Abians and our people to pray for the family and never to play politics with issues of life and death, bearing in mind that God alone is the author and finisher of our lives.
“Rest in peace, my dear brother and professor!”
Chief Wachuku prayed God to grant the family, Nsulu people and the entire people of Abia State the fortitude to bear the loss.
