Part of the statement reads, “I, the chairman of the People’s Democratic party, PDP, Edo State Chapter, Dr. Tony Aziegbemi, on behalf of our great party, wish to commiserate with the family of our National Leader Chief Tom Ikimi, over the loss of their dear sister, Madam Tessy Namorie Ikimi.
“I note with profound memories the laudable contributions Madam Tessy Ikimi made to the society at large and her immediate family.
“I shall not fail to mention her great sacrifices to saving lives while serving as a matron in the University of Benin Teaching Hospital, UBTH. Her’s was a selfless and dedicated time on the job. Her motherly humane, calm and generous attitude towards all shall be greatly missed.
