The remains of the erstwhile Treasurer of Abia State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), late Chief Steve Omeoga, was interred last Saturday in his country home at Ikpa Mgbelu Otampa, Isuikwuato Local Government Area of Abia State.

Chief Omeoga slumped and died late last year at the elite Ridge Club, Umuahia, shortly after playing lawn tennis.

Speaking during a funeral service held in honour of the late sports enthusiast at St. Michael’s Methodist Church, Mgbelu Otampa, the State Governor, Dr. Okezie Victor Ikpeazu, promised to fix the Amiyi-Otampa road and equally contribute in the completion of the St. Michael’s

Methodist Church in remembrance of the positive role the deceased played in the making of the 2015 political history of the state.

The governor described death as a harvest time, adding that “life does not consist of how long you live but the impact you were able to make while you were alive.”

In his condolence message, the State PDP Chairman, Chief Johnson Okebaram Onuigbo, said the deceased would be remembered as an honest, humble and forthright politician who took delight in the welfare of other people.

Earlier in his homily, the Archbishop of Umuahia, Methodist Church of Nigeria, His Grace Most Rev. Chibuzo Opoko, charged the congregation to always strive to lead good Christian lives so that their deeds would always shine in the minds of people, even when they were no more.

The clergyman stressed the need for people to impact positively on those around them and to be prepared for death by doing good.

Most Rev. Opoko described the deceased as a devout Christian, who, during his lifetime, dedicated himself to the service of God and humanity.

“His life and times were indeed impactful. To many, he was a mentor, a leader,a counsellor, and advisor, etc. He was an exceptional human being, a peacemaker, who was conscious of the imperatives of the Lord’s kingdom,” Opoko said.

Presenting a tribute on behalf of the family, his son Mr. Obinna Sunny Omeoga, said his late father died in his prime when he was needed most by his people.

Deputy Governor of the State, Rt. Hon. Ude Oko Chukwu, Sen. Mao Ohuabunwa,  PDP South East Legal Adviser, Barr. Ukpai Ukairo, other PDP heavy weights from across the federation, witnessed late Omeoga’s burial.
