Gov. Umahi was accompanied during the visit by his deputy, Eric Kelechi Igwe, the National Vice Chairman of PDP, South East, Chief Austin Umahi, Ebonyi State PDP Chairman, Onyekachi Nwebonyi,  Executive council members, local government chairmen and other top government functionaries.

The governor noted that he worked closely with the deceased on several occasions as he was friendly with everybody and was a guru in Information Communication Technology (ICT).

“His death is very shocking, a big loss to the family, the university and entire Ebonyi and we all should understand that we are visitors on this earth.

“It is like a journey and no one knows where he would disembark or can question God,” he said.

Chief Nnanna Elechi, the former governor’s first son who stood-in for his father during the visit, thanked Umahi for the visit and noted that the family was pained by the death.

“We thank everyone who has shared this moment of grief with us and prayed for God’s mercies on all.”
