Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State has commiserated with the Chairman of THISDAY/Arise Group, Prince Nduka Obaiegbena, on the death of his mother, Princess Margaret Obaiegbena (Nee Usifoh).

Princess Margaret Obaiegbena died at the age of 88 and the Royal family of Owa Kingdom in Delta State had confirmed her passing.

A statement by Oguwike Nwachuku,  Chief Press Secretary and Media Adviser to Governor Uzodinma said the governor, government and people of Imo State share in Prince Nduka Obaiegbena’s loss, particularly at a time like this when his mother’s wise counsel was needed most in the country.

Governor Uzodimma said that Princess Margaret Obaiegbena’s contribution to her community,  state and country,  using her nursing profession, ought to be emulated, noting that it was by dint of hard work, discipline and her believe in God that she got to the pinnacle of her profession and even surpassed it.

The Governor said it was therefore not surprising that  three governor’s found Princess Margaret Obaiegbena worthy of Service as Special Adviser, a position he said she merited based on her outstanding career in the nursing profession.

Governor Uzodimma further urged the Obaiegbenas to take solace in the fact that their matriarch left a legacy of an astute community leader, devout Christian mother, dependable politician and committed family woman of which many people will bear witness.
