Simon Egbong Is Dead! Cross River Lawmaker Dies After Protracted Illness by Upritman(m): 5:39pm On Aug 26, 2018
@SuanusBlog

After the recent election to fill a vacant seat at the Cross River State House of Assembly following the death of Hon.Stephen Ukpekpen, the member representing Obudu State Constituency who slumped and died in May during an early morning jogging session at Ikotenim, the Assembly village, another member of the state assembly is dead.

Suanu’s Blog gathered that Hon. Simon Nkoro, the member representing Ikom 11 State Constituency died on Sunday afternoon after a protracted illness.

It was further gathered that Hon.Nkoro who was a two time member of the Assembly was a member of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, and served as Special Adviser to Senator Liyel Imoke during his first tenure before moving to the Assembly.

Meanwhile, the state Governor, Senator Ben Ayade in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary Mr. Christian Ita described the death of Hon.Nkoro as shocking and painful.
“Hon Nkoro’s demise leaves a sour taste in m mouth and ache in my heart but then we cannot question God. Him and only Him has prerogative over life. He described Nkoro as a dedicated law maker, a consummate politician and a team player whose death is an immense loss to the people and government of the state,” the statement read.

May his soul rest in peace.

That is an advice to the common Nigerian, not the politicians in power. Definitely not the foods you mentioned could have given them diabetes if it was.

Ya, it could be diabetes, but not likely from those foods you mentioned. Perhaps from other source like beer etc

May this serve as a reminder to those elements in the National Assembly that they too shall taste death. How do they want to be remembered?
That said, rest well! Hope you served your people well because you will give account!

Sad I must say...
Did d medical records showed that he succumbed to diabetes or we are just speculating? These guys are too heavily paid not to manage diabetes no matter the extent. It could be something else. They drink too much to have liver and kidney issues, prostate not properly managed e.t.c.

We shall find out very soon

Buhari has refused to fix Nigerian hospitals

Not everyone can afford the kind of treatment he gets from London hospital

The man is sheer wicked

He defected finally to the grave and not to defect to any other party again. You better come into Christ the Lord before you defect to the grave, a place of no return.
Some politicians now who still have their lives are defecting from corruption into corruption and finally into corruption of no return

RIP HON member God will help our house of Assembly members not to die unnecessarily in Calabar.

Who is responsible for fixing Cross-Rivers hospitals? Is it the job of Buhari or the House of Assembly and the Governor of River State?

You are correct. Ayade set a precedent with empowering and sponsoring late Steve Ukpekpen's wife Abbey to take over his seat in the Assembly even when it was widely said that the wife knows nothing about the people she has been selected to lead,has never accepted them as her in-laws,not even how to say good morning in Betem language,we hope hope he will do same to this one.Nkoro's widow must be accorded the same benefit or sue the Governor and PDP.
Wives of law makers in the state,this is àn opportunity to kill ur husbands.Be sure of reaping bounties of continuity when he dies.

Ayade is clueless and wicked. Shame on Cross River PDP for choosing him.
