He continued: “She is a woman everyone would want to have as a mother. She was there through thick and thin, through every stage of my life. Even at her age before she departed, she cared about everything I do political and otherwise. We will surely miss her so much.”

According to him, he was shocked when he learnt of it, saying that he has lost “a companion and a friend.”

“She is a woman that stood for all her children. She has always been there for all of us. I will miss her advice and words of encouragement. She straightened my life as an individual. The life I am living today, I give honour to her for it. She shaped me from infancy up to my youthful age. When I was going astray, she brought me into the line of life and I never regretted it.”

She left behind six children.

Meanwhile, the politician, his elder brother, Mr. Monday Izu, Chairman, SSANU, Delta State University (DELSU), Abraka and others have since been receiving visitors from the university community, PDP political family and other groups in condolence visits.
