“Mrs. Patricia Anenih passed on at the age of 74 on Easter Sunday, April 16, 2017, in London while her son, Mr. Eugene Anenih, passed on the 14th of May, 2017 at 51. It is indeed heartbroken for any man to lose both wife and son within such a short interval.

“Our leader sir, we identify with your pain and agony at this trying period. Your wife’s untiring support in an extremely busy and action packed political career cannot be overemphasised. Her departure must have left you with so much sorrow.

“We believe in your capacity to overcome these painful losses. May the Lord grant you and your family the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss. We pray that you will not sorrow again in the remaining days of your life.” The statement read.
