“This is disheartening, painful and sorrowful for us to lose such a bundle of talents.

Hon Sam Obi manifested overt commitment to the Christian faith,” he stated.
Continuing, the former SSG posited that since death was inevitable, the loved ones, friends and colleagues should find solace in the fact that Obi lived a purposeful and fulfilled life particularly a life of faith in Jesus Christ.
He prayed to God Almighty to grant the family, friends and colleagues the fortitude to bear the loss.
