He said, “But we take solace in the fact that she lived a devout Christian life, triumphed in her chosen path and left indelible marks in the service of the Nation and humanity.
“The PDP commiserates with her immediate family, the people of Ikun in Biase Local Governnment Area of Cross River State, the academic community, the Cross River State chapter of the PDP and the people of Cross River State.
“As the National Woman Leader of our great party, she brought in an uncommon intellectual aptitude into party administration, especially in mobilizing women for greater participation in politics and governance.
“The PDP will always remember her tireless contributions alongside other PDP leaders in the effort to rebrand and strengthen our great party in the build-up to the 2023 general elections in line with the mission to rescue, rebuild and redirect our nation from misrule.”
