The Rivers State Governor, Sir Sim Fubara, on Monday, commiserated with the Nigerian Air Force Commander and Officers of the 115 Special Operations Group over the demise of one of its men, Sergeant D.F. Ekemughan, who died in active service.
Media aide to the governor Boniface Onyedi in a statement said, Gov. Fubara who presented a cheque of N20m to Sergeant Ekemughan’s widow, stated that this endowment was part of his avowed commitment to the security agencies in the State.
Represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Dr. Tammy Danagogo, he acknowledged that although no amount will be enough to equate human life, the gesture was aimed at assuring the bereaved family that their loved one did not die in vain while in service to the nation and humanity.
Speaking to the widow, Mrs Bobra Ekemughan, the Governor admonished her to keep her faith in God and be dedicated to the upright training of her children to become worthy citizens of Nigeria.
“We are here to let you know that we share in this sad process with you. You have to be strong and accept the reality of life as a leader to your children now, because God expects you to take up that responsibility.
“Rivers State Government appreciates the services of your husband. Keeping your faith in God, respect to your husband and responsibility to training your children to become worthy citizens of Nigeria should guide your conduct,” he said.
