National Executive Committee of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), South-South Zone, on Friday, paid a condolence visit to Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel, over the death of the State Chairman of the Party, late Obong (Hon.) Udo Ekpenyong.
The delegation, led by the PDP National Vice Chairman, South-South, Chief Dan Osi Orbih, was received at the Government House, Uyo, the state capital.
Addressing the governor, Orbih noted that the PDP family, especially in the South-South, and indeed Nigeria, had lost a strong pillar of the party with the passing of Ekpenyong.
The party’s national vice chairman said that within his short stay in office, late Ekpenyong was already interfacing with the Zonal Secretariat of the party and making robust suggestions on how to multiply the gains of the PDP in the region.
Orbih added that the PDP will continue to remember the late State Chairman for his result-oriented contributions which were critical to the advancement of the South-South region.
