Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has led other government functionaries to commiserate with a leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Tom Ikimi, over the passing of his sister, Theresa Namorie Ikimi.

Others in the entourage include the governor’s Chief of Staff, Hon. Osaigbovo Iyoha and Special Adviser on Media Projects, Mr Crusoe Osagie, among others.

Obaseki, while expressing grief over the loss, prayed for God to grant the PDP leader and other members of the Ikimi family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.

The governor said, “We’re here to express our sincere condolences and that of the people and government of Edo State on the passing of your late sister, Madam Theresa Namorie Ikimi.

“As a devoted catholic, we cannot question God Almighty. We know you’re older than her but God in his infinite wisdom decided to call her home before you.
