Dr Ogah in a condolence message on Wednesday expressed sadness over the PDP candidate’s death, noting that Abia has lost a bright son who as a former ABSU vice-chancellor has contributed immensely to the development of the State.

He said, “It is truly a sad day for our dear state as we have lost one of our brighter minds to the cold hand of death. A sound academic, his cannot be forgotten for his efforts in repositioning ABSU where he held sway as vice-chancellor.

“A true definition of gentleman, Prof. Uche Ikonne was a committed patriot whose desire for a new Abia was unpretentious.

“On behalf of my family, I commiserate with the government and people of Abia and pray God to grant the family and all those affected by the demise the fortitude to bear the loss”.
