President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed condolences to the Ohaa family of Amangwu Autonomous Community of Enugu State on the passing of the matriarch, Mrs Ezinne Janet Nwachi Ohaa (JP).
This was contained in a statement issued to PRIME TIME NEWS on Thursday and signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media & Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu.
The President particularly commiserated with one of the children, Mr Chinyeaka Ohaa, the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Power, having earlier spoken with him on the telephone on this sad development.
According to President Buhari, “Mrs Ezinne Ohaa was an epitome of humility and compassion, a devoted Christian and a loving mother, whose industry and belief in the dignity of labour stood her out within the community.”
“The early loss of her husband notwithstanding, Mrs Ohaa weathered the vicissitudes of life to impart positive values and bring up her children to enviable heights,” he added.
While praying that God will comfort family, friends and associates at this period, the President especially urged “the children to emulate her attributes, sustain the legacies she left behind and take solace in the fact that she lived a fulfilled life.”
As Mrs Ezinne is laid to rest on Friday, President Buhari prays that God will repose her soul.
