The Action Democratic Party candidate for Abia Governorship Race in the 2023 general election, Mazi Chibuike Jonas, has received the news of the death of erudite Professor and gubernatorial candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Prof Eleazar Uche Ikonne with rude shock because he was relieved by the initial news that he had returned home after treatment.
“The announcement caught me in rude shock because I hoped his condition had improved after initial treatment and return to Abia State. Yet, we cannot question God because he is the author and finisher of our fate. It is painful and a great loss to Abia State.
“I am praying that God will give the family the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss, especially his wife, children, and the entire family at this time of great trials.
“Death is inevitable and a price every living soul must pay. My earnest prayer for Prof Ikonne is that God, should in his infinite mercy rest his soul in perfect peace”, he prayed.
