Ndoma, Egba, Owan Enoh Mourn Over Odey

Ndoma, Egba, Owan Enoh Mourn Over Odey

Cross River Central Senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Chairman, Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC),

Senator Victor Ndoma Egba has said he is shocked over the demise of former National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief John Odey. Also, the APC gubernatorial candidate in Cross River State, Senator John Owan Enoh has expressed shock over the death of the former minister. Odey, who died on Sunday in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates at the age of 59 years, was also a former Minister of Information and Communication. His death was announced on Sunday morning after he was flown out of the country for medical attention for a cancer-related ailment in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Ndoma Egba in a statement signed by the NDDC Chairman’s Special Assistant Communications, Mrs Clara Braide, said the news of Odey’s death was devastating not only to him, but the people of Cross River and the country at large. He said that the nation would miss him at a critical period when Nigeria needed his wealth of experience. “I am truly shocked and saddened after receiving the news of the sudden passing of my brother, John Ogar Odey. “Words cannot describe the sense of personal loss I feel but also feel greater loss for our state and the nation. “He was truly a worthy representative of his generation who made us proud even as his best was yet to come. “He was a source of inspiration to all who crossed his path, he was a good friend and brother indeed and his invaluable contributions to the development of our people and the nation cannot be over-emphasised. “May God comfort the family he left behind, and may his soul find rest and peace," he said. Owan Enoh, on his part, described Odey as one of finest political leaders who enjoyed the respect of all. He said the former minister would be greatly missed. Odey, he said, was able to discharge his duties satisfactorily as commissioner for agriculture in the Cross River and as minister of environment. He prayed God to keep the bereaved family and give them the heart to bear the loss.
