Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River has commiserated with Senator Victor Ndoma-Egba over the death of his wife.
Amaka Ndoma-Egba and six others died in an auto crash on the Benin-Akure Expressway on Friday.
In a statement by his media aide Christian Ita on Saturday, Governor Ayade expressed deep sorrow over Mrs. Ndoma-Egba’s death, adding that it was yet another tragedy to befall the former Senate Leader in recent times.
“Dear Victor, the death of your dear wife is a severe blow on all of us who knew her, and a harder blow on you as her husband, friend and confidant.
“Words cannot adequately convey my heartfelt sorrow over Amaka’s death, for she was a kind and beautiful soul who spread love to all who encountered her,” he said.
The governor, however, urged Ndoma-Egba and his family to be consoled by the fact that the deceased selflessly and fervently served God and humanity during her life.
While praying God to give Ndoma-Egba the fortitude to bear the loss, Ayade prayed God to grant the deceased eternal peace.
