“The sad demise of his father at a time his wisdom is needed,  is unfortunate. As humans, we can’t question God. We can only pray to Him to come to the aide of his family at this trying time.

“The APC family in Edo State and the good people of Edo State will stand firmly with the family at this very difficult time. May papa’s soul rest in peace, amen.”
