Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State has expressed his condolences to three traditional rulers in the state—HRH Eze Henry Madumere, HRH Eze Sabinus Nwaneche, and HRH Eze Reginald Amadi—following the passing of their wives.

He described the occurrences as significant losses to both the state and the traditional institution.

The deceased wives of the monarchs – Ugoeze Marlinda Chikanele Ulunma Madumere, Ugoeze Patience Nkechinyere Nwaneche, and Ugoeze Ogechi Amadi, passed on recently after brief illnesses.

Eze Henry Madumere is the traditional ruler of Achi Mbieri in Mbaitoli, Eze Sabinus Nwaneche is of the Ogwuama Ancient kingdom in Ahiara, Ahiazu Mbaise while Eze Reginald Amadi is of the Obetiti-Nguru in Aboh Mbaise.

A statement by Oguwike Nwachuku, the chief press secretary and media adviser to the governor, said that Uzodinma was seriously pained on hearing about the death of the three mothers whom he held in very high esteem based on their outstanding personalities and motherly roles in their domains.

The statement said that the governor regretted that the Ugoezes would no longer be available to continue to assist their husbands in the good works they are doing in their different communities in the interest of our society.

Governor Uzodimma, according to the statement, maintained that the deceased would be sorely missed by all, adding that those mourning them should be consoled by the fact that they left behind legacies of service to God and humanity which are there for everyone to see.

He also commiserated with the Imo state traditional institution and urged all and sundry in the institution to join him in committing the families of the deceased in the hands of God during this trying moment as well as to pray for the souls of the deceased.

The statement added that Governor Uzodimma prayed to God on behalf of his family, the government, and the people of the state, to grant the souls of the Ugoezes a peaceful repose, and to their husbands and all that they have left behind to mourn their unfortunate death, the fortitude to bear the loss.
