Ohaneze condoles Sen. Orji Uzor Kalu over wife’s death

Chief Whip of the Senate and Former Governor of Abia State, Senator Orji Kalu

The Apex Igbo Socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, has condoled with Sen. Orji Uzor Kalu over the death of his wife, Dr. Ifeoma Uzor Kalu.

Her death was made known in a statement, personally signed by the former Abia State governor, where he announced that his wife died in the United States of America.

Kalu wrote, “With a heavy heart and pain, we announce the passing on to the eternal glory of Mrs Ifeoma Ada Kalu, aged 61.”

Mourning her, Ohaneze in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Dr Alex Ogbonnia, in Enugu on Monday, said they received with a rude shock the news of her death.

Ogbonnia said the former First Lady of Abia State had been described variously as kind-hearted, disciplined, diligent, brilliant, wholesome and virtuous woman of substance; a physician whose skill and expertise found full expression in the United States of America.

“It is, therefore, painful that death will strike at the age she should enjoy the rewards of her services to mankind.

“Although death is an inevitable reality for all mortals, it is the reminisces that we shall forever miss her beauty, charm, warmth, care, passion and the invaluable services she rendered to humanity while alive that throw us into deep mourning,” Ogbonnia said.

He added that the Chairman, Council of Elders, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, and indeed all the organs of Ohanaeze Ndigbo share “this moment of grief with our brother and son, Orji Uzor”.

“While we send our condolences to the Distinguished Senator, the children and the extended family, we also pray to the Almighty to grant the soul of Mrs Ifeoma Orji Uzor Kalu an eternal rest in his bosom,” he prayed. (NAN)
