Asaga mourns. Ohafia laments and Abia State grieves over the death of Chief Ukpai Agwu Ukpai, the ex-while Deputy Chief of staff to the governor of Abia State. May Ukpai’s soul rest in peace.
Chief Ukpai Agwu was honoured with the revered title of Ogbu Agu Asaga, an honour reserved only for the Great and courageous sons and daughters of Asaga.
It is rare to see a Lion or Tiger in the forest. So when you see one, you must shoot at it hoping to become an Ogbu Agu like our son Ukpai.
It is not every time that one is privileged to have His Excellency in his domain.
Let me therefore use this opportunity to warmly welcome His.Excellency, the Executive Governor of Abia State, Governor Victor Okezie Ikpeazu to Asaga Ohafia at the funeral of Chief Ukpai Agwu Ukpai, the then Deputy Chief of Staff to the Governor.
I also welcome other dignitaries from far and near
Let me also use this opportunity to thank the Governor for according Chief Ukpai a befiting passage to the great beyond.
Asaga and the entire Ohafia says Kaa wooo to you. May the good Lord replenish you mightily in Jesus name. AMEN.
His Excellency, Asaga particularly appreciates you for the very good palliative work done to fix the road that leads to the abode of Chief Ukpai. You have done well.
“Nde Igbo si na ekele Nwanyi Agidi na nke okworo ogwotakwa ozo”.
The Ukpai Agwu we know would have desired a better constructed road to his last resting place; A mechamadized road with well constructed drainages will be appreciated.
That road to Chief Ukpai’s residence also leads to Akanu Ohafia, and to Ebem Ohafia. It will be of great economic benefit to all concerned, if His Excellency will take a second consideration and make it a State priority. That road truly is a major problem to our community and we have always been patient and relied on the fact that Ukpai’s presence in Government will be used by the Governments to tar the road sooner or later. Now that Ukpai is gone, please let your Excellency help us and complete the good work you have started already.
Beyond the euphoria of the high caliber burial funfare of Chief Ukpai Agwu Ukpai, life continues.
What happens to the young widow of Ukpai his Children, relations and Asaga Uma Ukpai.
We know for sure, that Chief Ukpai served Abia State well. His very long stay in government testifies to this.
He served His Excellency, Distinguished Senator Orji Uzor Kalu.
He served His Excellency Distinguished Senator Ahamefuna Theodore Orji. &
He served His Excellency, Governor Victor Okezia Ikpeazu.
Chief Ukpai did not serve alone. He served the government with the active support or his dear wife, children, relations, Asaga Community.
His Excellency should please note and remember “the bereaved and orphans” that were behind Ukpai while he served the state.
His Royal Majesty Ezieogo Emmanuel Kalu Kalu Onugu
