The Lagos State governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has commiserated with the Senate Chief Whip, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, on the passing on to eternal glory of his wife, Mrs. Ifeoma Ada Kalu.

Mrs. Ifeoma Kalu, who died in the United States at age 61, is survived by her husband and four children.

In a statement issued on Monday by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Gboyega Akosile, Governor Sanwo-Olu offered his condolences on the demise of Mrs. Ifeoma Kalu.

He expressed his condolences to Senator Kalu, his family, and the people of Abia State.

The governor described Senator Kalu’s death as shocking and a great loss, and urged the former Governor of Abia State, members of the deceased’s immediate and extended families, deceased’s friends and associates to accept the late Ifeoma Kalu’s death in good faith, praying that God will comfort them.

He said: “On behalf of my family and the people of Lagos State, I commiserate with former Governor of Abia State and Senate Chief Whip, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, on the demise of his beloved wife of 33 years, Mrs. Ifeoma Ada Kalu.

“I also sympathise with all the children of the deceased – Neya Uzor Kalu, Michael Uzor Kalu, Olivia Uzor Kalu, and Nicole Uzor Kalu over the death of their mother.

“No doubt the death of a loved one is usually a painful episode in our lives because it is irreparable but we must always take solace in God for a good life spent by the late Ifeoma Kalu during her lifetime.

“Mrs. Kalu was a woman of virtue who committed herself to the service of God and humanity as well as a partner, friend, wife, and great supporter to her husband, Senator Orji Kalu.

“I pray for the repose of the late Mrs. Ifeoma Kalu’s soul. God will grant her eternal rest and grant Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, his children, and the deceased’s family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.”
