It was a solemn moment for Ibiono Ibom Legislative Council as it undertook a condolence visit to Senator Bassey Albert Akpan, over the sudden demise of his younger brother and two of his Aides.
The Leader of Ibiono Ibom Legislative Council, Hon. Udeme Sunday, who led members to commiserate with OBA and the family, at his Shelter Afrique Residence, Uyo, Monday, October 24, 2022, said the devastating death of two illustrious sons of Ibiono Ibom and the Police Escort Commander has devastated not only their families but the entire Local Government Area and Akwa Ibom at large.
He thereafter cautioned those who have decided to use the unfortunate incident to cast aspersions on OBA to desist from such disdainful act.
The leadership then urged Senator Akpan, who is the gubernatorial candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) in Akwa Ibom State, to be consoled in the word of God.
OBA thanked members of Ibiono Ibom Legislative Council (Councillors) for the visit and prayed for the repose of the souls of the departed.
He said, “I sincerely thank you for deeming it necessary to come and console me and my family on the painful losses. We are deeply touched and pray that God should continue to strengthen us through the solemn times”.
Praying for the families of the deceased, the Deputy Leader, Ibiono Ibom Legislative Council, Hon. Kufre Eyo, solicited God’s divine strength on the family to bear the irreplaceable losses
