Governor Ben Ayade has commiserated with Mr Cosmas Maduka, President of Coscharis Group, over the death of his wife, Charity.
In a condolence message issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, the governor said he received Charity Maduka’s sudden death with a profound sense of loss and shock.
Charity died on Sunday afternoon after a stroke in Nnewi, Anambra state where she went to attend a function with her husband.
According to the governor, Charity was a wonderful and rare source of wisdom, strength and wit that would be missed by those who knew her.
“As a diligent, hardworking and supportive wife, there is no doubt that she was an integral part of the success story that has become the Coscharis Group.
“I’m saddened and devastated by her departure not because she would have lived forever but because we never imagined she will be gone so soon.
“However, I’m consoled that she lived a life of service to God and humanity for in the words of Samuel Johnson, ‘it matters not how a man dies, but how he lives.’
“Losing a loved one, especially a life partner, can be emotionally excruciating, I can therefore imagine how crestfallen and downcast you are right now,” he said.
Thereafter, he prayed for the peaceful repose of the soul of the deceased, asking God to grant her eternal rest.
