OBITUARY: Ex-Senate Aspirant, Dodeye Arikpo To Bury Mom On Saturday – 1st December

Former Chief Security Officer to then Governor Liyel Imoke and recently, Cross River Central Senate aspirant of the PDP, Honourable Dodeye Arikpo will on Saturday, December 1st join other members of his family to honour-in-death her mother, Elder Mrs. Regina Ikpi Arikpo (Nee Sunday Okaka) who passed out on October 16th, 2018.

In a tribute to his late mother, Hon. Dodeye remembers the sacrifice the late matriarch made for him and his siblings, thirty years since their father died.

Excerpt of the tribute…

“Mumsie, I celebrate you with tears in my eyes and pains in my heart. Yet I give God praise for the life you lived. You were always an inspiration, not just to us your children but all that came in contact with you.

“For 30 years after our dad passed out, you stood firm and brought us to this point. You never stopped sacrificing, you never stopped praying, you never stopped believing.

“You loved Jesus passionately and you taught us to do so too. You did not pampered nor spared the rod. You kept it real at all times and you encouraged is to do so too.

“I am overwhelmed by emotion but not in dispair. I am filled with anguish but with no regrets. I am still stunned at your passing but not in denial. You have gone to be with our Lord Jesus in heaven.

“Yesterday I cried, today I write you a eulogy, tomorrow I will try to live again.

“Goodbye Mumsie. May you rest in Christ’s loving arms till we meet again!”

Late Mrs. Regina Ikpi Arikpo.
