A faction of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has commiserated with a former chairman of the party’s Board of Trustees, Tony Anenih, on the death of his wife and son.

In a condolence​ message by Dayo Adeyeye, National Publicity Secretary of the Ahmed Makarfi faction of the party, on Tuesday in Abuja, the party said it was heart-breaking for a man to lose wife and son with short intervals.

Patricia Anenih passed on at 74 in London on April 16.

Mr. Anenih’s son, Eugene Anenih, died on Sunday at the age of 51. Both are yet to be buried.

According to Mr. Adeyeye, the party identifies with Mr. Anenih’s agony at this trying period.

It said, “your wife’s untiring support in an extremely busy and action packed political career cannot be overemphasized. Her departure must have left you with so much sorrow.

“We believe in your capacity to overcome these painful losses. May the Lord grant you and your family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.

“We pray that you will not sorrow again in the remaining days of your life. May the souls of the departed rest with the Lord in perfect peace.”
