In a sermon, one of the officiating priests, Rev. Fr. Francis Eworo, stated that great people usually die young, just like Jesus Christ, John the Baptist and several other great people. He, nonetheless, said no one can escape death.
 
He noted that Amaka lived a worthy life, as she dedicated herself to the service of God and “certainly, God will travel with her and lift her up”.

The widower described his late wife as a builder of human beings. “In her house, nobody is called house girl. She was a strong woman who liked celebration.

We would celebrate her. It is not the quantity of life, but the life in our soul. I want to be buried close to my wife when I die.”

Cross River State Deputy Governor, Prof. Ivara Esu said God has a time for all mortals, adding that even if Amaka had not gone for the trip, maybe she would have still died, especially if the time table which God set out for her had reached.
 
Top dignitaries including Vice President Yemi Osinbanjo’s representative, Mrs Mary Ekpere Etta; former Governor, Donald Duke; wife of Senator Liyel Imooke, Obioma; former deputy governor of the state, Mr Efiok Cobham and Senator Sandy Onoh, among others graced at the ceremony.
