UKPA DIED A SAGE – EKERE

The Managing Director of Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Mr. Nsima Ekere, has described the late Paramount Ruler of ONNA Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State, Akwa Edidem Akpabio Udo Ukpa, as a sage who ruled with great wisdom, deep compassion, integrity and strong family and societal values.

 

In a condolence message to the deceased family on behalf of the commission, Mr. Ekere lamented that, though the monarch died at the ripe old age of 93, his death has left a void too large to fill.

 

He recalled Akwa Edidem Ukpa’s strides in the politics of the First and Second Republics as Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee of the Eastern Regional House of Chiefs and as Special Adviser on Political and Chieftaincy Affairs to Governor Clement Isong of old Cross River State.

 

Mr. Ekere also eulogized the late monarch for his activities as the founding National Chairman and later Life Patron of the Traditional Rulers of Oil Mineral Producing Communities of Nigeria (TROMPCON).

 

“Indeed, HRM Akwa Edidem Ukpa will be sorely missed,” he said.
