The member, House of Representatives, Arochukwu/Ohafia Federal Constituency, Rt. Hon. Uko Nkole today November 21, 2020 joined the Deputy Governor of Abia State, Rt. Hon. Sir Ude Oko Chukwu and the entire Etitiama Nkporo community in Ohafia LGA to bid farewell to his patriarch, Late Chief U. U. Egwu who transited to the greater beyond at the age of 68 and was laid to rest at his home town in Amudu Autonomous community, Etitiama Nkporo.
In his condolence message during the funeral oration organised in honour of the deceased by the Presbyterian Church of Nigeria, Ndi Elu Parish, Nkporo, Rep. Member Nkole said death is inevitable for every mortal and an end we all expect someday which however leaves a vacuum usually difficult to fill, no matter how long the deceased may have sojourned on earth.
Hon. Nkole described Late Chief Egwu as a devout Christian, peacemaker, community leader who contributed immensely to the growth of his community, and an academia who through dint of hardwork and sheer determination rose to the rank of Education Secretary of Ohafia Local Government Education Authority where he served and retired meritoriously.
The federal lawmaker added that Late Chief Ude Uka Egwu’s positive impacts and the services he rendered to God and humanity will remain indelible on the minds of those who passed through his academic tutelage.
On behalf of his family and the good people of Arochukwu/Ohafia Federal Constituency, Rt. Hon. Nkole prayed God to grant all who mourn him, the grace and fortitude to bear the loss.
