On behalf of the leaders, elders, members and the various Organs of our Party, I regret to announce the passing away to eternal glory of our dear State Chairman, Hon Ini Titus Okopido.

He died in the early hours of today after a brief illness.

Our hearts are heavy with grief as we mourn with his wife, children and family. This is a very painful death to the whole of the APC family in Akwa Ibom State in particular, and Nigeria as a whole.

Our Chairman was a committed and dedicated progressive and Party loyalist whose ideals were inexorably tied to the philosophy of our great Party. He contributed immensely to the growth of the Party in the last two years he’s been Chairman.

We call on our members to keep the family of our Chairman in prayers in this very difficult moment.

May their souls rest in peace.

Signed

Dr. Ita Udosen
