Therefore, he said: “This is deeply unfortunate, a young girl, 24 years old, who, finished her Youth Service just last year, and decided to pursue her passion.”

“This is a reflection of our Arise spirit.”

“It shows that our young people are willing to hustle, not begging, not waiting for handouts, but pursue their passions.”

Indeed, “It is sad and unfortunate that her life ended the way it did.”

Meanwhile, “Once I was fully briefed, I decided to come here personally with the full complement of Government to console and encourage the family.”

Hence, “I am not just the Governor when people are celebrating.”

“In times and moments like this, I become the Mourner- in-Chief and give them hope.”

Therefore, “I trust the Holy Spirit will perfect the hope in their lives.”

For instance, “Coming here means we care. You know Akwa Ibomites are like Americans. We don’t leave each other behind.”

“Government will be with the family and support them,”the Governor assured.
