Uzodimma condoles with Marwa over wife’s demise
Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma, has condoled with the Chairman of National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Brig-Gen. Mohammed Marwa (rtd) on the death of his wife, Zainab. He also mourned with the Agbaso family in Emekuku, Imo State.
The former First Lady of Lagos State from 1996 to 1999, whose mother was born into the Agbaso family, reportedly died on Saturday, while battling an undisclosed illness, at the age of 66.
In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary/Media Adviser, Oguwike Nwachuku, the governor described her passing “as shocking and painful,” given what she represented in the life of Marwa in particular and her family in general.
He urged Marwa to be consoled that his late wife lived a fulfilled life.
Uzodimma also sympathised with Chief Martins Agbaso and his younger brother-cum former deputy governor of Imo State, Chief Jude Agbaso, and the family.
He said it would be difficult for the people of Emekuku and Imo to forget in a hurry how Zainab impacted their lives when she was the First Lady of Borno State from 1990 to 1992.
Uzodimma prayed God, on behalf of his family and the people of Imo, to grant the Agbaso family, the people of Emekuku and Imo in general the fortitude to bear the huge loss of their beloved sister and daughter and the soul of the departed repose.
