Ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has condoled with the family and friends of the former Bayelsa State Governor Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, who died on Saturday, just as the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said it was ‘still in shock over the news of the sudden death of the former governor.’
In a statement issued in Abuja, Sunday by the APC’s National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party also condoled with the Bayelsa State Government over the death of its former Governor, saying ‘it received the news of the former Governor’s demise with great shock, considering that he was not publicly reported to have been gravely ill.’
The party, therefore, prayed that the family would find comfort in their moment of sadness, as well as the strength to bear the loss of their loved one
”May the soul of the departed also rest in perfect peace,” the party said.
On its party, the Acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, on behalf of the National Executive Committee (NEC) and the PDP family nationwide mourned the death of former Governor of Bayelsa state, Chief Diepreye Alamieyeseigha.
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, in a statement on Sunday said the party is still in shock over the news of the sudden death of the former governor, describing the development as deeply saddening.
“The PDP mourns the demise of this great Nigerian, who made immense contributions and sacrifices towards the unity, stability and development of his state and our dear nation both as a military officer and a politician.
“Chief Alamieyeseigha was a true democrat; humble leader, brilliant administrator who had extraordinary love for his people. He was an outstanding party-man, who, despite his travails, remained loyal to the PDP at state and national levels to the very end
“The PDP sincerely commiserates with Governor Seriake Dickson, the Alamieyeseigha family, the Ijaw kingdom and the people of Bayelsa state and pray God to give them the fortitude to bear this great loss.
