The governor of Ondo State, Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN, has paid a condolence visit to the erstwhile Senate Leader and former Chairman of Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, Victor Ndoma-Egba, SAN, over the sad death of his wife, Amaka.
The visitation was revealed in a statement issued by the Special Assistant on New Media to the governor, Olabode Richard Olatunde.
Recall that late Amaka Ndoma-Egba died in a ghastly auto crash on her way to Okitipupa in Okitipupa Local Government Area of Ondo State.
Governor Akeredolu who had earlier condoled with Ndoma-Egba through an official statement, personally visited the former helmsman of the NDDC in his Abuja residence, alongside the Chairman of Ondo State chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, Engr. Ade Adetimehin and some members of the state executive council.
The Exco members include: the Head of Service, HoS, Mr. Dare Aragbaiye, the Commissioner for Finance, Hon. Wale Akinterinwa and the Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Hon. Donald Ojogo.
Akeredolu sympathized with his close friend and fellow SAN, Ndoma-Egba, and prayed to God to grant him and the family the courage and strength to bear the irreplaceable loss.
Recall that the Ndoma-Egba residence has become a Mecca of sorts since the painful death of Amak.a with many other prominent Nigerians having visited Ndoma-Egba in Asokoro to comfort and show love to him and his family members.
Among them are: the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, Governors of Kebbi and Jigawa states, Atiku Bagudu and Badaru Abuabakar, Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio, former Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, Senators James Manager and Smart Adeyemi, former Governor of Cross River State, Liyel Imoke, Senator Bob Effiong, former NBA President and one-time Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, AGF, Chief Bayo Ojo, SAN.
