In a condolence message released by his Chief Press Secretary, Ekerete Udoh, Governor Emmanuel said he was “deeply saddened by the sad and unfortunate demise of the Chairman of the APC in the State, Honourable Ini Okpoido whose sad event took place yesterday (August 5th, 2020.)
“On behalf of myself and family, I extend our deepest condolences to you and your dear family on this very sad and unfortunate development. Even though you belonged to a different political party, there is no denying our common humanity and the abiding desire to engender a speedy development of our dear State and ensure better quality of life for our people which you shared and which is what I have sworn to executing.
“You were a great Akwa Ibom patriot and I pray the Almighty God to grant you eternal rest and your family and loved ones the fortitude to bear this sad loss.”
