Minister of State for Finance, Budget and National Planning, Clem Agba, has commiserated with Festus Alenkhe, chairman, Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Edo State council, over the demise of his mother, Rose Akuogbe Alenkhe.
In a condolence message, he personally signed, a copy of which was made available to newsmen, Agba described Alenkhe as a true mother who showed love to her children and mankind.
“Despite the vicissitudes of life, your mother was very well known for the unmatched love she showed to all her children as well as for her leadership and commitment to community development.

The minister prayed God to grant the NUJ chairman and others she left behind the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
