The Progressives Governors Forum (PGF) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have formally condoled with the family of the Director General of the Voice of Nigeria (VON), Mr Osita Okechukwu, over the death of his wife, Mrs Augustina Okechukwu.
The PGF’s condolence letter, addressed to the VON DG and delivered on Tuesday, was signed by the Director General of the Forum, Salihu Moh. Lukman, on behalf of the APC governors.
The Governors said they were saddened by Mrs Okechukwu’s passing, even as they prayed that God grants the Okechukwu family the fortitude to bear the painful loss.
