CONDOLENCE MESSAGE

 

The Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) worldwide condoles with his former President, Dr. Chris Ekiyor on the demise of his grandmother, Late Mama Asene Ekiyor. She passed on at the ripe age of 114.

The IYC also condole with the entire Ekiyor and Gee families of Kabowei Kingdom in Patani Local Government Area of Delta State and urge them to take solace in the fact that grand mummy lived a fulfilled life.

We therefore call on Ijaw youths to join our President Emeritus, Dr. Chris Ekiyor and the entire Ekiyor family to give her a befitting burial. Ijaw youths are expected to effectively participate in the burial activities which start from today, Friday December 2, 2016 to Sunday, December 4, 2016. There would be several activities including traditional all night wake keeping at her husband and father’s compounds in Patani town where top Ijaw musicians such as Barrister Smooth and Abraham Young, among others would be on display.

May the soul of grand mummy rest in perfect peace, amen!

Signed for the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) worldwide:

Eric Omare,

Spokesman
