The leadership and members of the United Progressive Party (UPP) have expressed sadness over the news of the transition to glory of Nneoma Eunice Nkwoada Iwu, mother of former chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Prof Maurice Iwu at the age of 88 years.
The party in a letter to the former INEC chairman and signed by its national chairman, Chief Chekwas Okorie, described the deceased as a devout Christian, who was also an embodiment of grace, integrity, humility and nobility, with abundant milk of human kindness which she generously dispensed to all those who were privileged to know her, particularly the less privileged.
“She was a woman of destiny and a role model to younger women. Indeed, the demise of an adorable Mother at any age, is always painful to her children as nobody can take her place in the family.
“No doubt her departure has created a big vacuum in the hearts of members of your family and all those she positively affected their lives. We enjoin you all to take solace in the fact that Mama lived a fulfilled life and along with her beloved husband, raised successful children like you, Your Excellency, Professor Maurice Iwu.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with members of your family in this period of grief, and pray to God Almighty to console, comfort and strengthen all those affected by her transition to glory. For Mama, it is a celebration of life well lived,” the party said.
