“In this difficult time as we beseech the most merciful God to grant accelerated healing to Miss Sonia Ekweremadu,” the statement read in part.
The state government extended its profound gratitude to the Federal Government of Nigeria and the National Assembly for their empathy, support, solidarity and legal intervention.
It went further to appreciate the prayers of well-meaning Nigerians for early resolution of the issues.
