Abia PDP flag bearer, Ikon’s shocking death – Ujah

The candidate for governor of Abia State in the All Progressives Congress, Dr Ochokwu Sampson Oga, has expressed his shock at the death of Professor Ochena Ikon.

Until his death, Akon was the HDP, DPP, candidate in Abia State in the March 11, 2022 elections for Governor and Vice-Chancellor of Abia State University, Otoro (ABSU).

Ikon’s death was confirmed by his son, Chikezi, in a statement he issued on behalf of the family.

The statement read: “I regret to announce the death of my dear father, Professor Eleazar Oshena Ikon, who passed away at the National Hospital, Abuja today, January 25, 2023 by 4 am after a short illness.

“He was recovering after receiving appropriate treatment in the UK but he relapsed a few days ago which led to several heart attacks from which he never recovered.”

In response, Oja called Professor Ikon a dear friend and brother, and also expressed his sorrow that the latter’s death had “created a hole that would be difficult to fill in the lives of his family, relatives, associates, and ardent supporters.”

According to him, “Indeed, the sudden demise of Professor Akon created a vacuum that denied Abnes and his fellow gubernatorial candidates in this current electoral process the opportunity to engage in a high base of adoption and exchange of contemporary ideas and the supremacy of the same in the quest to establish a better governance model in the state Abia.”

While also extolling the virtues of the late politician Appiah and Professor of Optometry, Oja offered condolences to the Ekon family he left to carry on his legacy and dismiss Appiah from the HDP, praying to Almighty God in His boundless mercy to grant everyone the fortitude to bear this heavy loss.
