….I agonise and mourn his death-Gov. Ayade

Cross River State has been thrown into mourning following the death on Sunday, of Mr. Simon Nkoro-Egbung, the member representing Ikom Constituency 2 in the state House of Assembly.

The state governor, Prof. Ben Ayade, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Mr. Christian Ita, described Nkoro’s death as a shock and loss so painful to bear.

“Mr. Nkoro’s demise leaves a sour taste in my mouth and ache in my heart. But then, we cannot question God, Him and only Him alone has prerogative over life.

According to him, the late lawmaker was a consummate politician, a team player and loyal party man, whose death is a huge loss to the people and government of Cross River.

The governor who offered deep condolences to Nkoro-Egbung’s family, colleagues and constituency, prayed God to grant them the fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss. In his words, “we are together with you in prayers in this moment of unspeakable sadness”.

Nkoro-Egbung who was until his death, the Deputy Leader of the House and a third term member of the house, died at the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital after a brief sickness.
