Dear Party Leaders and Faithfuls, it has taken over 24 hours for me to come to terms with the devastating news of the sudden demise of Rt. Hon (Barr.) Zakawanu Garuba.
Zakawanu and I have always had a close relationship. Right from his days in SEC, and even recently to the several discussions we had regarding political issues, where we agreed to disagree, disagreed to agree. In all of this, we both agreed that the well-being of Edos was paramount, hence no love lost.
I sincerely have no words. It’s such an unbelievable and painful loss.
I hope that we somehow find peace during this difficult time, and I pray that we all get the much needed strength to bear this devastating tragedy.
My thoughts and prayers are with us, his political family and his entire family.
Rt.Hon (Engr) Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama.
