The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed deep saddened over the death of human right activist and social crusader, Barrister Esther Uzoma, where the party described her death as a huge loss to the nation and humanity at large.
The PDP in a statement released on Saturday 9th January 2021, stated that the late convener of Nigerian Civil Society Situation Room and National Coordinator of Proactive Gender Initiatives (PGI) was a patriotic Nigerian who dedicated her life towards the entrenchment of democratic tenets of good governance, justice, equity and fairness in all spheres of our national life.
Esther Uzoma according to the party, was a strong-willed advocate of strict adherence to the rule of law, who also remained steadfast as a voice for the vulnerable and downtrodden till the end.
“PDP is sad that our nation has lost one of her bright and promising patriots, especially at this time such voices are needed the most in our collective quest to rescue and reposition our nation for the task ahead.
PDP commiserates with Barr. Uzoma’s husband, her children, the larger Uzoma family, the civil society fold, particularly, the Situation Room, as well as the Proactive Gender Initiatives for this loss.
Our party prays God to grant eternal repose to the faithful departed and to the bereaved, the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss,” the party said.
