“Be strong, God knows best. He will comfort you on all sides and ensure affliction does not arise a second time”.
These are the words of Speaker of the 7th Abia State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji, as he commiserates with the family of Elder Statesman, Chief Emmanuel Adaelu of Abayi Amaugwu Autonomous Community in Osisioma Ngwa LGA, over the untimely demise of their son, Mr Alex Alozie Adaelu.
The Speaker who described the Late Alex Adaelu as a devoted Christian, loving family man, successful businessman and employer of labour, wondered why death has decided to lay its hands on one of Abia’s finest.
He urged the family to be consoled by the fact that the Late Mr Alex Adaelu lived a fulfilled life, saying he has no doubt that he is resting in the Lord.
“On behalf of Members of the 7th Abia State House of Assembly, I earnestly pray God to grant the family the fortitude to bear the painful loss”, he said.
