A chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party in Akwa Ibom State, Mr James Iniama has announced the passing of his wife, Mrs. Eme James Iniama.

According to him, she passed on after a sudden illness on 14th of July, 2023, in an Abuja hospital.

Speaking to our correspondent in Uyo, on Friday, 28th July on the funeral arrangements, the bereaved Mr. Iniama lamented that he has lost a great friend but said he takes solace in God’s words, knowing that those in Christ do not die but sleep and are alive in Christ.

“Having lived for over 30 years with my wife and friend, I can say she had remained my best friend and I can’t envisage a replacement for her. No… Not at this time. She is the only one that understood me so well.

“I can say that we had come to a point that we could do anything for each other and we could hardly offend one another. Spiritually, she was so strong that I was always sure I had a spiritual backing wherever I was. I feel so empty now that she is gone. My friend has left me…” The chieftain, who was a front line aspirant in the 2023 governorship election in the state, expressed.
