Eminent business mogul and former Governor of Abia State, Dr. Orji Kalu, has commiserated with the Governor of Ebonyi State, Chief David Umahi, over the demise of his mother, Deaconess Margaret Umahi.
Kalu acknowledged the selfless service of the late matriarch of the Umahi family to her community.
In a statement signed by his Special Adviser, Kunle Oyewumi, Kalu said: “I would like to sympathize with Governor David Umahi over the passing of his beloved mother, Deaconess Margaret Umahi. She was a devout Christian who dedicated her life to the service of God and humanity. Mrs Umahi was kind-hearted and generous as she committed her resources to the empowerment of the less privileged in the society. Mama was a reference and rallying point to many in the society most especially the womenfolk who cherished her modest way of life.”
Kalu urged the deceased’s family to uphold the virtues of Deaconess Umahi, noting that she lived a fulfilled life worth emulating.
The former governor, while commiserating the government and people of Ebonyi State and the Umahi family, prayed God to grant the deceased eternal rest.
