It was with immense sadness that I learned of the demise of your beloved wife, Mrs Jane Nnamani. There’s no doubt that her loss is a monumental one for you and the entire Nnamani family.

“The enviable milestones you have achieved in your political career and even in private businesses, could not have been possible without the psychological and emotional support of a dutiful and lovely wife like Lady Jane Nnamani.

“Even though she died at the young age of 58, hers was a vindication of the adage that it is not how long one lives but how well that matters. She will surely continue to inspire fun memories in the hearts of those who love her and whose lives she touched. 

“As her remains are buried today, o pray that God Almighty grant you, your children and every member of your family the strength the fortitude to bear this loss and to carry on without her. I pray that her soul rests in eternal peace”.
