17 July 2014, 15:08

Abuja - First Lady Patience  Jonathan on Wednesday commiserated with Governor Idris Wada of Kogi over the death of his father, Pa Wada Ejiga, who died on Sunday.

This is contained in a statement issued by Ayo Adesugba, her Director of Information, in Abuja.

Jonathan described the late Ejiga as a great philanthropist and beloved community leader.

She said the deceased would forever be celebrated as a highly respected patriarch and mentor who made an indelible mark as one of the early educationists in the Igala land.

The first lady said that the deceased died when his fatherly counsel, experience and wisdom was needed in the governor’s task of piloting the affairs of the state.

She urged the family as well as the people of the state to take solace in the knowledge that the late Ejiga lived a life of fulfillment and bequeathed a great and enduring legacy.

The first lady also prayed for the repose of his soul.
