Jumbo Ogah, George Daniel

The entire family of the special adviser to the president on inter-party affairs Senator Ben Obi is currently in their trial times as they lost their sister, Professor Josephine Anagbogu.

The 56-year-old Anagbogu has suffered cancer of the colon for several years before she finally succumbed to death in the United States of America.

President Goodluck Jonathan had sympathized with the family as Anagbogu was buried yesterday, October 03, 2014.

President Jonathan in his condolence message read on his behalf by the governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, urged the family to bear the loss with fortitude.

Obiano made it known how difficult it is to lose a sister and the pains that follow such loss especially for someone as young as the late senator. Furthermore, he indulged the family and Senator Obi to focus more on God who is the comforter especially in times like this.

While sympathizing with the family, the immediate former governor of Anambra state, Mr. Peter Obi admitted that the loss was a very painful one and that the Prof Anabgogu, would definitely be missed by her dear family and loved ones reminding them all that God knows everything and cannot be questioned.
