Abe mourns ex-mayor of Port Harcourt


The lawmaker representing Rivers Southeast, Senator Magnus Abe, has mourned ex-Mayor of Port Harcourt Chief Nnamdi Wokekoro.

Wokekoro, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), died on Tuesday, of an unknown ailment, at Kesley Harrison Hospital, Mile One, Diobu, Port Harcourt.

The senator said he worked with the deceased  as chairman of the then Rivers State Environmental Sanitation Authority and described him as a hardworking and committed public servant.

Abe, in a statement in Port Harcourt by his spokesperson, Parry Saroh Benson, said: “I received with shock, the news of the call to eternal glory of my friend and brother, Chief Nnamdi Wokekoro aka Ikwerre 1.

“Words cannot describe how I feel. Sometimes life appears cruel and unpredictable, but we all know that only the mountains stand forever, only the rivers flow forever.

“A man is born, he lives for his time and in the end he dies. Chief Wokekoro has lived for his time and we give God the glory for life, for we are here today and gone tomorrow. Farewell, my dear brother, till we meet again.”
