Gov. Wike, saddened over death of Nwakaudu
Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Rivers state Council, has expressed shock over the sudden death of Mr. Simeon Nwakaudu, special assistant on electronic media to Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike.
The union in a statement jointly signed by the Chairman and Secretary, Stanley Job Stanley, and Ike Wigodo, respectively,
commiserated with Gov. Wike, the Nwakaudu family, over the untimely loss of their beloved one.
The statement described Nwakaudu as a loyal, hard-working and dedicated aide, who helped the Wike administration publicise its programmes in no small measure.
Nwakaudu died on Sunday at the Rivers State University Teaching Hospital (RSUTH) during a brief illness.
He was appointed Special Assistant to the governor on Electronic Media in 2015 shortly after Gov. Wike was sworn-in as governor of Rivers state.
The NUJ prayed God to give Gov. Wike and the deceased family the fortitude to bear the loss.
Meanwhile, Gov. Wike in his condolence message described late Nwakaudu as a loyal and dedicated professional who contributed immensely to the implementation of the ‘The NEW Rivers Vision’.
The governor on behalf of his family, the government and good people of the state condoled with the bereaved family.
He prayed God to grant them the fortitude to bear the great loss.
