Senator-elect for Anambra Central senatorial zone, Mrs. Uche Ekwunife has expressed shock over the death of the secretary, Nigerian Union of Journalists, NUJ, Anambra Council, Ifeoma Anumba, who died yesterday at the age of 38.
Ekwunife in a statement issued by her media assistant, Uzor Emmanuel, described the death of the young lady as very devastating, especially in her prime when the country and entire humanity needed her services most.
She described the late NUJ scribe as a very diligent and hardworking young lady who served with joy and always smiling, and prayed God to grant her eternal rest.
The statement read: “it is with deep sense of sorrow and bewilderment that I commiserate with the family of Anumba of Nawfia community and the entire members of the Nigerian Union of Journalists, NUJ, Anambra Council over the death of their daughter and secretary, Lady Ifeoma Anumba. The death is so painful as it is so devastating. We are always forced to relapse and only say it is well whenever we lost somebody so dear to our heart.
“I call on the members of NUJ in the state to see this as a tragedy that befell all of us and not the journalists alone, we shall miss her smiling face and doggedness in the sustenance of the ethos of the noble profession in the state and by extension, the country at large.”
She urged media practitioners to immortalise the late Ifeoma Anumba by living up to the calling of their profession and uphold truth which she said wouldl further deepen democracy in the country.
